Cities and towns across the U.S. Northeast are cancelling public schools on Monday in anticipation of a superstorm that is threatening millions of people with heavy rain, flooding, winds and snow.

Hurricane Sandy is expected to make landfall on the mid-Atlantic coast late Monday or early Tuesday, most likely in New Jersey, colliding with a wintry storm moving in from the west and cold air streaming down from the arctic.

All public schools have already been canceled in New York City, Boston and Philadelphia, and many other cities and towns have delays. Below is a list of big cities that are affected; click on the link for more information about school closings and delays.
