Hurricane Sandy is expected to make landfall on the southern Jersey Shore tonight, but the storms won’t reach western Kentucky. Four Purchase Area Red Cross volunteers have already deployed to the East Coast to assist with relief. National Weather Service meteorologist Greg Muffert says strong winds with gusts up to 30 miles per hour are all people in the area should expect tomorrow.
“I think the Murray area is going to stay in sunshine through this whole event,” he says. “It’s just going to be mainly the wind we’re going to have to contend with and that’s mainly going to affect boaters and anyone driving a high profile vehicle.”
He warns that people should wait until winds die down around sunset tomorrow to burn any leaves, because the wind increases fire danger.
