NEW YORK (AP) - New York City is closing schools and ordering some residents in low-lying areas to leave ahead of the massive storm approaching the eastern third of the U.S.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday that closed the 1.1 million-student New York City school system will be closed Monday. The closing follows the suspension of the city's transit system.
He also ordered the evacuation of part of lower Manhattan and the Rockaways, a low-lying area of Queens.
Rainfall is expected to start late Sunday or early Monday in New York. Hurricane Sandy is headed north from the Caribbean to meet a winter storm and a cold front. Experts say the rare hybrid storm that results will cause havoc over 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes.
