It looks like the casino industry is braced to see some Hurricane Sandy disruptions, starting in Iowa where the deadline for applications for a land based casino has been pushed back to allow interested parties a chance to dodge the bad weather and deal with any complications that it may cause for them. The initial deadline for applications was November 1st, but that has now been moved back four days to the 5th in order to be more accommodating while the storm passes through.
It is likely that casino goers in nearby states will also see some disruption to land based casino services, especially if there is a situation whereby the casino building is damaged and they must close for a longer period of time in order to complete the necessary repairs or refurbishments. If this is the case in your area, then you should certainly think about turning to online casinos in the meantime. So long as your internet connection and your power both stay strong, you will be able to access Vegas casino games for the duration of the storm and in the aftermath as well, so if Hurricane Sandy disrupts your local venue then there will really be nothing for you to worry about in terms of getting your regular fix of casino games. There are plenty of sites out there which cater to US based players, so you should have no trouble finding one that you are able to access easily right from your home!
Areas which are expected to be affected or have already been affected by Hurricane Sandy include parts of New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, and Vermont, as well as Canadian areas around Montreal and Ottawa. Later on, affected areas may also include New Hampshire and Maine, as well as large parts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Remember to only use your computer and internet if it is safe to do so, as having a computer plugged in to the mains and turned on during a power surge could damage the inside of your machine permanently.
