s government officials rush to provide temporary housing for tens of thousands of people displaced by Hurricane Sandy, a potentially dangerous storm is expected to hit the Northeast and mid-Atlantic states with another round of high winds, driving rain, and storm tides on Wednesday and Thursday. The National Weather Service says the northeaster could buffet the New York area with sustained winds up to 40 miles per hour, and gusts up to 60 mph. The storm also could bring storm tides as high as four-and-a-half feet into areas on Long Island, Staten Island, and the Jersey Shore that suffered heavy erosion in last week's superstorm. This week's harsh weather, which will also bring freezing temperatures, isn't expected to cause anything near the devastation left by Sandy, but it could compound damage already to homes, businesses, coastlines, and the electric grid.
