Floridians have little to fear from Hurricane Sandy as the storm loses some force and begins veering away. But New Englanders are worrying about Sandy's fury as a combination of weather conditions threaten to turn it into a disaster for them as early as Monday.
Forecasters now say there is a 90 percent chance that the East Coast will take a direct hit from Hurricane Sandy. The storm could affect some 50 million people. Meteorologists are calling sandy a “once in a lifetime” event.
Sandy is likely to merge with a winter storm front, transforming into what the National Weather Service calls a "Frankenstorm" over the northeastern U.S., right around Halloween.
Sandy has already left at least 21 dead as it moved over Haiti, Jamaica and Cuba.
