Hurricane Sandy could hit Florida coast


CUBA (WKOW) --  Hurricane Sandy has claimed at least two lives, one in Jamaica, and one in Haiti.

The hurricane hit the southern coast of Cuba Thursday morning, and could eventually impact Florida. Hurricane Sandy battled Jamaica with 80 mph winds, downing trees and damaging homes all across the island.

The storm strengthened once leaving Jamaica, from a category one storm, to a category two. That has the potential of 110 mph winds.
