MOSCOW, October 29 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations considers assistance to the countries hit by Hurricane Sandy.
“I ask you to look into emergency humanitarian response to help those hit by Hurricane Sandy,” Minister for Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov said at a ministerial video conference.
Late on Sunday the hurricane, which moves north along the Atlantic coast of the United States, was in the ocean about 400 kilometers off the Hatteras Island, North Carolina. According to forecasts, on Monday it will come ashore in the New York / New Jersey area. Weathermen warn that it will meet ashore with a major cold front of low pressure moving from Canada and will turn into a super storm.
It is not ruled out that it may affect some 15 states and such major cities as New York, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Sandy may cause destruction from the Atlantic coast to the Great Lakes.
