D.C. braces for Hurricane Sandy
Officials have urged residents to use common sense to deal with Hurricane Sandy, what has been called an unprecedented weather event, that has closed schools and government offices and left people up and down the East Coast preparing for power outages and collapsed roofs before a single raindrop fell.
Thomas N. Graham, regional director for Pepco, warned that there were likely to be several days without power, adding that it will not be safe to put linemen in bucket trucks with heavy winds. He joined the mayor and other safety officials Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012 to discuss the District's preparations for Sandy, the so-called "Frankenstorm" that is expected to hit the area by Monday morning.
