>>> millions of residents only have a few hours of daylight to prepare for sandy. homeowners are stocking up on supplies and boarding up windows. we're in rerehoboth beach, delaware .
>> a lot of people are heeding evacuation orders. this is low tide , looks pretty impressive. as conditions start to deteriorate and go downhill. a lot of that water will push up to this area, probably to the fence, maybe even beyond. evacuation order impacts roughly 50,000 people in the coastal delaware area and extends to the whole delmarva peninsula . it will encompass a lot of areas of maryland, virginia as well. anticipating 4 to 8 feet of tidal surge , storm surge coming up. as the storm system moves further inland, they are expecting 4 to 8 inches. i spoke to one of the representatives of the red cross , he says this will be a massive response for the red cross . moved in more than 400 people, coming from the mid-atlantic up to new york. anticipating a huge response to this, and telling people right now to get your preparation and your evacuation and emergency plans together, the wind is really closing in right now. they are anticipating that when this actually starts to happen, we are probably looking at in the next few hours, as conditions start to worsen, think about your family and what it will be like if you actually do stay. there is no power, possibly no water as well. if you have the time and the opportunity, get out now. it won't be very comfortable to say the least if you do say. and probably this will get even worse as you head through the night. the next few hours, it will get even worse .
>> okay, than troung, thank you for watching that for us in delaware .
