Folks pack Cabela's for generators

HAMBURG, Pa. -

People all over our area are preparing for the storm, and that's made a lot of area shopping centers a mad house for consumers.

Cabela's in Hamburg was packed Saturday morning.

People waited in long lines overnight to get their hands on a generator, just in case Hurricane Sandy knocks their power out.

"It's a little hectic , a lot of folks here are trying to prepare for the hurricane but overall we're pretty well organized. We're taking care of what we need to do to take care of our customers," said General Manager Matt Burtch.

Cabela's said its latest shipment of 150 generators sold out in 15 minutes.
