(Harrisburg) -- Utilities, road crews, and emergency management personnel throughout Pennsylvania say they are keeping a close watch on Hurricane Sandy.
Utility workers have been told to cancel vacations, state transportation officials are plotting storm strategy and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency has been in touch with federal weather forecasters about the likely path of the storm.
Sandy made landfall over Cuba early today.
Forecasters say the storm may combine with other weather systems to create a major storm over the northeastern US early next week.
PPL spokesman Michael Wood says the electric utility has canceled personal time for its workers, asked hundreds of local contractors to remain on standby and reached out to its sister utility in Kentucky in case crews need to be brought in.
