In Cape May, New Jersey the riding tide has already submerged streets.

As the storm takes aim on the heavily populated Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, officials are warning the worst is yet to come.

The monster storm stretches more than 800 miles wide.

As it collides with two winter weather systems 60 million people are now bracing for its force.
 
Thousands in low lying parts of New York and New Jersey are under mandatory evacuations.
 
Throughout the Northeast airports are closed, with thousands of flights canceled nationwide.

Public transportation, including the New York City subway system, is also shut down.
 
The storm could dump wind and rain for 36 hours, causing wide spread power outages.
 
A curfew is now in effect in parts of New Jersey. 

People are being told to get inside and stay there throughout the duration of this storm.
