Whether or not Hurricane Sandy is blowing through your neck of the woods, it will still affect your life. Experts are already calling it “one for the record books,” a piece of history in the making.

The already enormous cyclone strengthened Monday, giving the Category 1 storm potential to be one of the worst of our time. If you’re interested in watching Sandy storm up the coast while breaking records, try looking online.

Here’s a list of various formal news and webcam views you can follow—at least for now. A previously available webcam, Jersey Shore’s Cape May, was taken down by the storm early Monday morning.
