Monmouth County gears up as Hurricane Sandy remains a threat

BELMAR - Emergency officials in Monmouth County are warning residents to prepare for a scary pre-Halloween storm.

"This storm has the potential to affect the East Coast from Florida all the way to New York within the next week," Sheriff Shaun Golden said. "I urge residents to prepare, plan and stay informed about the coming hurricane."

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist James Gregorio says the severity of the storm will depend on how Sandy tracks as it transitions into a large coastal storm and moves northward along the East Coast.

There's the potential for heavy rain, strong winds, rough seas, beach erosion and coastal flooding beginning Sunday.
