As New York City residents prepare for the arrival of “Frankenstorm” Hurricane Sandy, grocery store lines are unusually long and supplies are running low in some departments.

Items such as flashlights, D batteries and bottled water have already run low in many locations, as have bread and nonperishable food items. Other items that may run low include tarps and pumps.

Grocery store lines in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and undoubtedly throughout the city were stretching through the aisles this evening. According to ABC News, one Trader Joe’s line just to enter the store wrapped around the block. Also, FreshDirect has cancelled deliveries tonight, causing more people to head to actual grocery stores than usual.

A helpful tip when shopping last minute is to keep dollar stores and pharmacies in mind, as sometimes they are not as busy or as picked over.
