Hurricane Sandy made landfall in Jamaica on Wednesday afternoon, and it is increasingly likely to turn into a massive — potentially even historic — storm with the potential to spread hazards ranging from coastal flooding to high winds across a wide area from the Carolinas northward to New England. Parts of the East Coast could start feeling the effects of Sandy as early as Saturday, and forecasters are beginning to urge people to start making preparations for severe weather, in case the computer models are correct and the storm does fail to turn harmlessly out to sea.
