Hurricane Sandy has already hit the Caribbean and hit Cuba early Thursday. Now forecasters are saying it could hit the U.S. East Coast next week, reported USA Today.

USA Today reported that it could also miss the East Coast entirely but if it does hit, it could bring a huge storm, potentially ruining Halloween and complicating election day plans. USA Today reported that it would bring "coastal flooding, drenching rainfall, high winds, downed trees, power outages, travel mayhem and even Appalachian snow," according to meteorologist Alex Sosnowski from AccuWeather.

Hurricane Sandy which has made landfall on Thursday in Cuba and much of the U.S. East Coast has a chance of getting hit by early next week. Huffington Post reported ClimateScience.org's Brad Johnson as saying, "Sandy is yet another reminder that the candidates should stop competing over who can poison the weather faster with increased oil, gas and coal production."

The Associated Press reported that the worst of it should be on early Tuesday but it will go on until mid week.

"It'll be a rough couple days from Hatteras up to Cape Cod,' said forecaster Jim Cisco of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration prediction center in College Park, Md. 'We don't have many modern precedents for what the models are suggesting.

"It is likely to hit during a full moon when tides are near their highest, increasing coastal flooding potential, NOAA forecasts warn. And with some trees still leafy and the potential for snow, power outages could last to Election Day, some meteorologists fear," reported the AP.

The AP reported Sandy hitting Cuba, just west of Santiago de Cuba, early Thursday. The hurricane passed through the Caribbean and left two dead.

"The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm hit Cuba with maximum sustained winds of 114 mph. The Miami center said Sandy, which had strengthened to a category 2 hurricane, is expected to remain a hurricane as it moves through the Bahamas," reported the AP.
