gearing up for sandy

I am on the South River in MD and this is my first storm with my Catalina 27. My marina is pretty protected from the south.
Current thoughts are to:
Double up lines
Add simple chafe gear where appropriate
Remove canvas
Remove headsail (leave main and cover)

Debating about spending Tuesday on the boat adjusting lines. Should I be worried about storm surge? My gut says the bay and rivers that far north are probably ok. Any advice would be great
