What Are Lawmakers Saying About Sandy?

With Sandy bearing down on the East Coast, members of Congress today are urging constituents to take precautions, giving out information and even playing forecaster.

"For everyone in the path of Hurricane #sandy -- be safe," House Speaker John Boehner said on Twitter
Boehner's colleagues expressed similar sentiment. 
"Thoughts and prayers with everyone in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Stay safe!" Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said.
Republican Rep. Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey told his constituents to hunker down. 
"As said on @987TheCoast in Cape May, everyone be safe, stay put during #Sandy. Don't put you or first responders in unnecessary harms way," he said on Twitter.
A number of lawmakers, including Reps. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., Kevin Yoder, R-Kansas, Pete Sessions, R-Texas, Peter Visclosky, D-Ind., and Bill Flores, R-Texas, announced that their Hill offices are closed.
Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia tweeted information about school and transit closures. 

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa of California said he wished all his East Coast followers were safe.

Freshman Republican Rep. David McKinley of West Virginia updated his followers on the storm's track. 

"Hurricane Sandy continues to makes its way toward West Virginia. The brunt of storm expected to impact DC residents at 4 p.m. today," he said.
