Here we go again. As East Coasters are still recuperating from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy last week, another crazy storm is expected to hit the area.
A nor’easter is predicted to bring 50 mph winds and heavy rain into New York and New Jersey starting Wednesday afternoon. Snow has already been reported this morning near Philadelphia and Atlantic City, and will fall from northern Maryland to eastern Pennsylvania. It's also forecasted that storm surges on the coastlines will reach up to 3 feet . With the storm predicted to last into Thursday, many fear that those who finally got power back may lose it again.
