Ryan Calls for Prayers as Americans Brace for Hurricane Sandy

CELINA, Ohio - With Hurricane Sandy now baring down on the east coast, GOP vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan called for prayers for those bracing for impact.

"Let's today when we get home, put in our prayers the people who are in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that's coming," Ryan said at the top of his speech during a campaign rally in Celina, Ohio. "Let's not forget those fellow Americans of ours and as we think about what's important to us, as we think about our own lives, our neighbors, our country, our children, our grand children."

Sandy is being described as a behemoth storm. The category one hurricane is now threatening much of the Eastern Seaboard and is expected to make landfall early Tuesday morning near the Delaware coast, before hitting two separate winter weather systems as it moves inland.
