Hurricane Sandy is scheduled to make it's way up the east coast late this weekend and could possibly affect Ohio early next week.
The storm is expected to produce strong winds, rain, and possible snow but could potentially combine with a cold front to form what experts are calling a "Superstorm."
The impact of the storm is expected to be felt strongest in the northeast but Ohio could be susceptable to strong winds and a wintry mix if the storm combines with the expected cold front.
The Ohio insurance institute encourages people to take preventitive measures against a possible storm. Some of those measures include making sure you have enough food, batteries, and to double-check your generator, if you have one, to make sure it's working. Another possible measure could be to search your yard for loose or dead tree branches.
The summer storms may have left a lot of people with damaged trees so its important to make sure they wont cause an issue if the expected high winds occur.
