ATLANTA (AP) -- State transportation officials are making exceptions to size and weight limits for trucks so extra heavy loads of equipment can be shipped to states affected to Hurricane Sandy.
Retailers like Home Depot and Walmart have large distribution facilities in the state. State Department of Transportation spokeswoman Jill Goldberg says lifting the weight limits allows trucks to carry heavy loads of generators and other equipment to states farther north.
By midday Monday, the storm was picking up speed and was expected to blow ashore in New Jersey or Delaware early in the evening, hours sooner than previously expected. Forecasters warned it would combine with two other weather systems -- a wintry storm from the west and cold air rushing in from the Arctic -- to create an epic superstorm.
