First signs of Sandy

First signs of Sandy

Waves crash into a seawall at Hampton Beach, N.H., Monday morning - the first signs of Hurricane Sandy's arrival. Waves and wind are expected to strengthen on the New England coast as the massive storm makes landfall in the mid-Atlantic then moves north.

Waves spray people on a seawall at Hampton Beach, N.H., as Hurricane Sandy's outer edges begin to whip the New England coast.


Some - but not all - homes were boarded in Hampton Beach, N.H., in anticipation of a storm surge and winds forecast to reach 60 mph, because of the impact of Hurricane Sandy hundreds of miles to the south.


Coastal communities including Salisbury, Mass., created sand barriers on their beaches to protect ocean-facing buildings from Sandy's rising waters.

There was no need to pay for parking Monday morning in Hampton Beach, N.H., which in better weather is a popular spot to hit the beach.
