Superstorm Sandy slams into Atlantic coast

Published: 10.30.12, 06:53 / Israel News

Superstorm Sandy slammed into the New Jersey coastline and hurled a record-breaking 13-foot (4-meter) surge of seawater at New York City on Monday, roaring ashore and putting the presidential campaign on hold a week before Election Day. At least 13 deaths were blamed on the storm.


Sandy knocked out power to at least 5.7 million people across the US East, and New York's main utility said large sections of Manhattan had been plunged into darkness by the storm, with 250,000 customers without power as water pressed into the island from three sides, flooding rail yards, subway tracks, tunnels and roads.
