'Frankenstorm' to hit Montreal early next week
Forecasters are calling for a blustery Halloween week in many parts of Quebec.
A storm called Sandy that's churning in the Atlantic is expected to grow into a hurricane by the time it hits the US eastern seaboard over the weekend. By early next week, Quebecers will get to feel its effects.
In addition, Sandy is expected to collide with Arctic air mass out at sea, which could make the storm a monster, one that some meterologists are suggesting could cause damages in the billions.
It's expected to bring wind, rain, and even snow to much of the American east coast.
Environment Canada meterologist Andre Cantin we'll mainly feel the winds in Montreal and area.
"We're expecting winds starting on Monday, and increasing overnight through Tuesday and Wednesday. These winds could reach as high as 80 to 100 kilometres an hour in some places."
