Help

People along the east coast of the US are preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Sandy, which has killed more than 40 people across the Caribbean.

States of emergency have been declared in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington DC and a coastal county in North Carolina.

The BBC spoke to Michaelyn Hein, a New Jersey resident, who said conditions were calm but that she was planning to stock up on supplies before the storm's arrival.
