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.

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. There had been plans to allow electronic trading to go forward on the NYSE, but with a storm surge expected to cover parts of lower Manhattan in floodwaters, officials decided late Sunday that it was too risky to ask any personnel to staff the exchanges.
