>>> with halloween a week away, there is something potentially scary brewing in the atlantic ocean , a hurricane that could slam directly into the northeast as soon as this weekend. weather channel 's jim cantore has more on the weather.
>> reporter: yes, 30 in a row here with 19 named storms, this one for 2012 could be the most memorable. let's talk about sandy as it moved across jamaica, leaving 500 in shelters, causing power outages, moving into the bahamas. then we start to watch the impact for the u.s., really ramping up as we go through the day on friday, we could certainly see hurricane gusts or close to it. big erosion problems there in some of the areas as we approach the high tide on monday. and then the models begin to take this towards the west a little bit. that has been a big, big shift today. so if a storm comes in today that could be big problems for new england, and the new jersey shore . if a storm system comes in a little bit further to new england, we could still have problems here. so for the second year in a row, we face a pre- halloween storm that could leave millions in the dark.
>> not good news, jim cantore ,
