Sandy's effects hit Mid-Atlantic

Hurricane Sandy set to come ashore in New Jersey this evening is already causing high water and power outages.

Waves crash over the bow of a tugboat as it passes near the Statue of Liberty in New York on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, as rough water as the result of Hurricane Sandy churned the waters of New York Harbor. Hurricane Sandy continued on its path Monday, forcing the shutdown of mass transit, schools and financial markets; sending coastal residents fleeing; and threatening a dangerous mix of high winds and soaking rain.
