As Halloween approaches, US weather forecasters are frightened about the possibility of a monster storm slamming into the mainland. Frankenstein, which is also called the monster is a fictional character, but according to experts this one is the real deal.

Frankenstorm is a monster combination of high wind, heavy rain, extreme tides and perhaps even a snow storm to boot. The snow could possibly cause havoc along the East Coast around the time the nation celebrates an annual Halloween holiday.

The National Hurricane Center is identifying it as Sandy, which has blown through Haiti and Cuba and continues to barrel north. A wintry storm is chugging across from the West with frigid air streaming south from Canada.

As Sandy made its way across the Caribbean, the hurricane was blamed for at least four deaths in Haiti and Jamaica. The 18th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season slammed into the Bahamas after crossing across Cuba, where it tore roofs off homes and damaged fields full of crops.
