    Hurricane Sandy may slam into U.S. East Coast as Halloween week "Frankenstorm"

    Updated 9:48 PM ET


    WASHINGTON An unusual nasty mix of a hurricane and a winter storm that forecasters are now calling "Frankenstorm" is likely to blast most of the East Coast next week, focusing the worst of its weather mayhem around New York City and New Jersey.


    U.S. government forecasters on Thursday upped the odds of a major weather mess, now saying there's a 90 percent chance that the East will get steady gale-force winds, heavy rain, flooding and maybe snow starting Sunday and stretching past Halloween on Wednesday.

    Easy predictions ...

    The kooks will blame Obama if he doesn't visit the area soon enough.

    The kooks will blame Obama if he does visit the area soon enough.

    The kooks need to see what Obama does before they can decide which to blame him for. They're not honest enough to pick a single position ahead of time and be consistent about it.

    Really, for all those making political statements on this storm. This is an unprecedented event. It is extremely dangerous, and will result in multiple fatalities. Much property will be damaged or destroyed, much of it owned by people that cannot replace it. Our thoughts and prayers should be with the people in the path of this storm. Whatever political fallout there is can wait until everyone has their power back on, and have a warm, dry place to be. This is a very serious event, not one that should be played politics with as it is happening.
