Hurricane Sandy is heading for the East Coast - Here's how to prepare

Body: 

Hurricane Sandy

As if last year's Halloween snow storm wasn't enough for folks in the Northeast, this year it looks like Hurricane Sandy might stop by for a visit over the weekend. Things look to be brewing up throughout the day, so if you're in New Jersey (like I am) or the surrounding area, you'll want to make sure you are properly prepared. This obviously applies to any natural disasters or state or emergency, not just a hurricane. A lot of this is just being ready before things get bad and not waiting to the last minute to prepare, but we've got a checklist to keep you ahead of the game.
