Monday's Radio Smart Talk will provide the latest up-to-date information on Hurricane Sandy.

The storm is expected to bring up to ten inches of rain and high sustained winds of 30-50 miles-per-hour with gusts up to 70 MPH to the midstate.  Sandy is potentially one of the most dangerous storms to hit Pennsylvania in decades.  Gov. Tom Corbett has already a state of emergency and many municipalities have as well.

Most schools are closed and mass transit systems shut down, including Amtrak service for most of the Northeast. 

We'll get the latest information to you on the storm's path and how it is impacting the state.  The program will also have the latest from emergency services, the utilities, and road conditions.

We also encourage you to call the show or email us with news you may have about how the storm is affecting you or to pass along any information that may be useful.
