  • The National Weather Service says a potentially dangerous autumn storm system could affect Delaware early next week.
    The nor'easter could sweep through the region between Oct. 28 and Oct. 31, according to the NWS.
    This storm would be associated with what is currently Tropical Storm Sandy and could bring the threat of strong, damaging wind gusts, extremely heavy rainfall, major inland flooding and major coastal flooding, weather officials said.
    Tropical Storm Sandy's path is not certain yet, but the nor'easter could potentially come through the Delaware, New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania region.
    There are more than 20 potential tracks the storm could take.
    The NWS predicts Sandy will reach hurricane strength Oct. 24 and continue to move north.
    As of Oct. 23, the eye of the storm was just south of Cuba.
    Sandy is a slow-moving storm, which worsens the potential for heavy rainfall inland, according to the NWS. The area affected will be determined by the storm's track.
