Sandy's punch may be felt from Virginia to Massachusetts, said Rick Knabb, the hurricane center's director. The combined weather systems may dump as much as 36 inches (91 centimeters) of snow on West Virginia. Warnings of gusts as strong as 70 miles per hour stretch from Maine to North Carolina and as far west as Ohio, according to the National Weather Service.
