>> good morning, savannah and matt. they built this birm, this dune about a mile long yesterday to protect against this nor'easter coming in. they are putting in an access point. they will be bringing in dump trucks to put in more sand to protect against storm surge . let's show you the nor'easter right now. it's making its way up along the new jersey coast. it's bringing in strong northeasterly winds. wind gusts of anywhere from 30 to 40 miles per hour. take a look. we're expecting airport delays today along the i-95 corridor. we're also expecting storm surge coming in, anywhere from 2 to 4 feet of storm surge along the eastern seaboard , and as you can see that storm surge is going to be causing some problems as far as beach erosion , flooding, shore waves of 8 to 12 feet and wind gusts of 65 miles per hour. and we've got rain with this system. we're talking about anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of rain, but look at what's behind it. along the new york-new jersey shoreline, on into pennsylvania and upstate new york we're talking about snow. some areas picking up 6 to 9 inches of snow. the philadelphia area has a winter storm warning in effect for tonight on into tomorrow. so big effects due to this nor'easter after sandy pound the area a week before this. that's what's going on around the country. here's what's happening in your neck of the woods.
>> savannah, you talk about big trucks, they are bringing in big trucks to get a big, big job done.
>> get out of the way there, al. they have a lot of work to do. thank you so much. we'll check back in with you in a bit. just ahead,
