Coast Prepares For Hurricane Sandy

Residents along North Carolina's coast are watching to see what Hurricane Sandy does in the Atlantic.

Hurricane Sandy is expected to track along the east coast over the next several days. What is not known is how strong its impact will be. Dare County officials are telling residents to expect winds up to 50 miles per hour and up to eight inches of rain from Saturday afternoon through early Monday. Currituck County officials are sending equipment out to protect their stretch of the Outer Banks. Despite the preparations, many coastal residents say they don't expect this storm to be as dangerous as Hurricane Irene was last year. West of the coast, "Sandy" is not expected to do much damage. Triangle residents may see some rain and a few wind gusts.
