Batten down the hatches. That’s the advice from Environment Canada in preparation for Hurricane Sandy.
A Wind Warning has been issued for the region, and severe weather meteorologist Arnold Ashton says gusts could get up to 60 mph.
“This is enough to cause sporadic power outages as branches come down, the odd tree blocks a road or cuts power lines,” says Ashton. “So it’s going to be pretty nasty.”
He adds that the storm will not be as bad for this region as first thought because the storm won’t come directly at the area, meaning less rain. Up to an inch of showers is forecast by the end of the night.
