Women enjoy a beautiful day on the board walk while heavy equipment is used to pile sand into berms before the arrival of Hurricane Sandy at Brighton Beach, New York, October 27, 2012. Tropical cyclone Sandy revved back up to hurricane strength on Saturday as it churned toward the U.S. northeast coast where it threatens to become one of the worst storms in decades. The late-season storm has been dubbed "Frankenstorm" by some weather watchers because it will combine elements of a tropical cyclone and a winter storm and is forecast to reach the U.S. coast close to Halloween.

Hurricane Sandy, a late-season Atlantic storm unlike anything seen in more than two decades, slogged slowly toward the U.S. East Coast on Friday after killing at least 41 people as it cut across the Caribbean. Forecasters said Sandy, with an expanding wind field already 550 miles wide, had begun merging with a polar air mass over the eastern United States, potentially spawning a hybrid "super storm" that could wreak havoc along the East Coast.

In Chester County, South Carolina, off a dirt road in the middle of a field, insurance companies are literally unleashing a storm. To simulate hurricane-like conditions, an industry group has built a wind tunnel big enough to accommodate nine large residential homes. Some 105 fans deliver gusts of 175 miles per hour, destroying dwellings built precisely for this purpose. The goal is to construct homes across the country that can withstand the worst Mother Nature has to offer, which lately has been quite a lot -- not to mention tough if not impossible for insurers to predict.

Andy Clyde installs wind sensors to a test building inside the wind tunnel and test chamber at the Institute for Business and Home Safety's Research Center in Richburg, South Carolina December 22, 2010. In Chester County, South Carolina, off a dirt road in the middle of a field, insurance companies are literally unleashing a storm. To simulate hurricane-like conditions, an industry group has built a wind tunnel big enough to accommodate nine large residential homes. Some 105 fans deliver gusts of 175 miles per hour, destroying dwellings built precisely for this purpose. The goal is to construct homes across the country that can withstand the worst Mother Nature has to offer, which lately has been quite a lot -- not to mention tough if not impossible for insurers to predict.

A Colombian U.N. policeman tries to stop Haitian earthquake survivors from overloading a truck driven by the U.N. in Camp Corail, a provisional camp about 20 km (12 miles) north of Port-au-Prince, November 4, 2010. Efforts were underway to evacuate some 2,000 people from Corail, an exposed camp outside Port-au-Prince set up by the U.N. and aid groups to resettle homeless quake survivors, as Tropical Storm Tomas bore down on the poor Caribbean country already reeling from a cholera epidemic and destruction from the quake. Aid workers say the camp's location at the confluence of several streams makes it particularly vulnerable to flooding. REUTERS/ Eduardo Munoz (HAITI - Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT)

A tropical cyclone barreling toward Haiti threatens hundreds of thousands with deadly floodwaters and will likely worsen a cholera epidemic that has already killed more than 440 people, the United Nations said on Wednesday. Tropical Storm Tomas is expected to hit Haiti on Friday, unleashing torrential rains and a storm surge of up to 6 to 9 feet that will put 1.5 million people at risk, said Nigel Fisher, the U.N. humanitarian coordinator in Haiti, citing government estimates.

Play in the Ryder Cup begins on September 19. Preparations for next week's Ryder Cup were temporarily halted on Sunday as the remnants of Hurricane Ike swept across much of Kentucky. Winds gusting up to 90 kph (145 kms) blew a television tower on to the 12th green at Valhalla Golf Club, causing minor damage, and the on-course media centre was closed as a safety precaution.
