From Florida to New England, Americans are getting ready for Hurricane Sandy. The southern extremities of the East Coast are already feeling the wind, as the full power of the storm lashes the Bahamas. Cuba is already reporting 11 deaths.

Reporter Kevin Ozebek from WSVN in Miami posted this eerie picture.

Meanwhile, our neighbors in the Bahamas are already feeling the full force of the storm.

Bahamian news anchor Shenique Miller is building an impressive list of photos, showing Sandy’s impact on various islands in her country.

In Florida, tweeters are reporting increasing wind speed.

Farther north, people are scrambling to prepare for a hurricane they weren’t expecting. Boston sports journalist Dan St. Pierre turned to Twitter for suggestions.

St. Pierre proves the American sense of humor prevails, even during disaster preparation:

We at Twitchy wish Mr. St. Pierre good luck with his preparations and send our prayers to all those in the path of the storm.
