Sandy’s already bearing down on the Jersey Shore – flooding started on Sunday morning. I’ve compiled a list of must-follow twitter accounts so you can track Sandy’s progress in real time.
Here’s who to follow:
For Weather Updates
@SStirling, Stephen Sterling, Star-Ledger
@GarySzatkowski, Gary Szatkowski, Meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Mount Holly
For Crowdsourced Information
@JSHurricaneNews, all of New Jersey

I will not be down the shore for Sandy, but I will be Tweeting to share information from @byJenAMiller as long as I have power. If I get thrown into Twitter jail for Tweeting too much, as I did with Irene, I will start Tweeting from my former handle @jerseyshorejen.
If there are any other accounts you suggest our readers follow, tell us in the comments below.
Stay safe, everyone.
