Millions Without Power, 40 Dead as Result of Sandy: Complete Coverage

The scale of devastation of super storm Sandy is big, as at least 40 people have been killed and authorities struggle to restore the power and transit of millions.

President Obama declared disasters in New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut and promised the government will do all it can to help local authorities cope with the damage. The President is scheduled to visit the damaged areas in New Jersey on Wednesday.
Michael Bloomberg, mayor or New York City, said assessing the scope of a once-in-a-generation hurricane that killed at least 40 people, swept homes into the ocean, flooded large swaths of coastal areas, left millions of people without power and crippled transportation.
It is not possible to put a value on Sandy’s devastation but insured losses alone will run from 7 billion to 15 billion dollars.
This historic storm, which made landfall at 6:45 p.m. ET Monday, put a wall of water up to 13 feet high at the Northeast coast.
