Tropical Storm Sandy
It’s a name we’ll never forget but will thankfully not have to hear about again — as far as storms go.
With much of the Eastern Seaboard in the path of a rare behemoth storm, residents of the nation’s most densely populated corridor contemplated whether to heed dire warnings of torrential rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow.
With Hurricane Sandy taking aim at New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie ordered Atlantic City’s 12 casinos to shut down by Sunday afternoon as part of his statewide emergency declaration.
The Mayor said that all parks would be closed by 5 p.m. on Sunday and that MTA shutdowns would be possible by 7 p.m. on Sunday as well.
