Lifelong Cape May resident Andy Becica watches rough surf pound the beach on Monday morning, Oct. 29, 2012, in Cape May, N.J., as high tide and Hurricane Sandy begin to arrive. Mr. Becica said this was the worst he's seen the ocean. 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.
