"I have anxieties about it. I don't want to go through a large hurricane," said Alex DeSantis.
"My wife does. She says oh isn't it awful, its getting close," said John Costello.
Before the storm arrives, agencies, like Red Cross, are preparing for anything and everything. Volunteers are on standby and area shelters are ready and stocked with supplies.
There are some things you can do right at home.
"Anything that can blow and can become a hazard, you want to secure. Garbage cans, lawn furniture, things like that," said Erin Caldwell, Regional Director of Communications.
Surprisingly, fall foliage is also a concern.
Agencies say it's important to rake your leaves so they don't block drains. Blocked drains can cause flooding.
"It is a concern. That's why I'm out here while the leaves are still dry because when they are wet, they are very hard to move," said Vincent Massaro.
For now, all people can do is prepare and wait.
"We aren't about to start stocking up on stuff and raiding Wegmans. I am just hoping it doesn't happen in a large hurricane way," said DeSantis.
Red Cross also suggests buying flashlights and batteries. Avoid using candles.
