The National Hurricane Center said early Monday that the storm has top sustained winds of 85 miles per hour, with higher gusts.

It is moving toward the north-northwest at 20 miles per hour and hurricane-force winds extended as far as 175 miles from the storm's center.

Sandy was on track to collide with a wintry storm moving in from the west and cold air streaming down from the Arctic.

Major metropolitan areas from Washington to Boston were bracing for what is expected to be a superstorm that could menace some 50 million people in the most heavily populated corridor in the nation.
