The East Coast is still trying to recover from the punch delivered by superstorm Sandy. 106 are dead and over 1.3 million homes and businesses are without power.

While voters are making their way to the polls, they'll also be bracing themselves for another storm that's on the way. The Nor'easter is moving up the coast from Florida and is expected to hit New York and New Jersey tomorrow afternoon.

Nor'easter storms are low-pressure systems similar to hurricanes, except they thrive on cold air. Specific to the East Coast, the storms are known to cause flooding, high winds and blizzard-like conditions depending on the time of year they hit.
