Transcript for Where Will Hurricane Sandy Hit and What to Expect
A real sense of where the storm is now and what it's going to do when it makes land fall. It's marching up the east coast. Our extreme weather team has the very latest starting with sam champion who's in battery park city, a low-lying neighborhood that's high alert. Sam? Good morning. You can see why. If you look right behind us, all of that is new york harbor, where we're standing right here, three feet from coming up. Now, we'll talk a little bit about that amtrak and subway issue. Roads and trains like am rank the, they're susceptible to trees down. You're looking at three feet of water before it pops the area here, all of that water runs where? Into subways. . That's the biggest concern. They may have to close down s and subways. Lot of weather problems. It's not just the storm surge, it's wind, it's flooding rains and the kickback, more rain will run off from wherever that heavy rain is going. So, with all of that, let's show you where the track of this storm is, so you're prepared. Right on track. Hurricane center hasn't changed much at all.

But look at how angry that ocean is on that shoreline and we're expecting this storm to make a curve and move onshore, somewhere near where our ginger zee is right now. Ginger is in atlantic city.
