First Lady Michelle Obama hit the campaign trail a day ahead of Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to make landfall on Monday.

Obama was scheduled to fly to Iowa on Monday for a campaign stop but flew to Chicago a day early to avoid the storm, according to a Chicago Sun-Times report.

The First Lady plans to spend the night in Chicago on Sunday, but there were no details about whether she would stay at the family home in Kenwood, the report stated.

Earlier on Sunday, President Barack Obama urged those in Sandy's projected path to take the storm seriously.
