On Monday, Hurricane Sandy made its way towards the East Coast, slated to made a landfall somewhere between New Jersey and Maryland late Monday night, but not before barreling through major cities from New York to Boston to Washington to Baltimore.

Weather forecasters called Hurricane Sandy a rare "super storm" classified as category one with winds up to 85 miles per hour all the way up to New England.

Sandy was caused by an Arctic jet stream wrapped around a tropical storm and could cause up to 12 inches of rain in some place and two feet of snow in the Appalachian Mountains from West Virginia to Kentucky. Many cities will also face widespread power outages, which prompted the closures of some transit systems Monday as well as school closures and halted flights.

According to The National Weather Service, Sandy was about 310 miles south-southeast of New York City moving north-northwest at about 20 miles an hour around 8 a.m. EST.

US President Barack Obama called the storm "serious and big," prompting the cancellation of his campaign tour in Florida. The New York Stock Exchange also closed for the first time since 1985 and more than 8,000 flights were cancelled between major cities in the U.S.

While Sandy is set to be the biggest storm to threaten the East Coast in years with its damaging winds and slow moving rainfall, each city has its own peak for the storm and specific impact times.
