Super Storm: Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, officials advise

NORWICH – While it remains unknown exactly where Hurricane Sandy will make landfall, city and county officials are advising residents to keep an eye on the Category 1 storm over the weekend and to prepare for what some are calling a potential “super storm.”

The center’s website, nhc.noaa.gov, reports maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour as of this morning, while the City of Norwich Emergency Management Office reported the possibility of three to four inches of rain – depending on Sandy’s course – expected to fall here between Sunday and Tuesday.
