PHILADELPHIA - Good luck buying lanterns, generators, propane, or - if you're really unprepared - rain boots and batteries in areas in the path of Hurricane Sandy as it bears down on the US East Coast.

The approach of the gigantic storm - expected to come ashore Monday night - set off a scramble this weekend for supplies from Virginia to New England, causing long lines at gas stations, bare shelves at hardware and home-supply shops, and a run on bread, bottled water and canned foods at grocery stores.

Big population centers including New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore and Boston were in the hurricane's path.

Gas pumps along the Berlin Turnpike in Newington, Connecticut, were covered with plastic bags.
