Coastal Residents Keeping An Eye On Hurricane Sandy

Coastal residents are keeping an eye on the tropics now that Hurricane Sandy is out in the Atlantic and expected to move up the coast over the weekend.

WITN Chief meteorologist Marvin Daugherty says Sandy is expected to remain off the coast, but that doesn't mean we won't see impacts here.

The big impacts are expected to be ocean swells, possible beach erosion, rain and wind gusts between 30 to 40 MPH.

Gail Dawkins and her husband are visiting Atlantic Beach, but says when it comes to mother nature she wins everytime. Dawkins says, "No matter what we plan she's got her plans and you just cant fight it."

Janet Bradley has lived on the coast for 32-years and says she isn't worried. "Were use to it and it looks like this one is going to go by offshore. If it was coming right for us like it does sometimes straight on we would be a little more worried ."
