Trail of destruction


NEW YORK — Hurricane Sandy carved a devastating path of destruction Monday into Tuesday, and it’s not over yet, according to

By early Tuesday morning seven million customers were without power across 10 states, and at least 26 people had died due to the storm.

Throughout the hardest hit areas, trees were uprooted, streets became rivers, subway tunnels flooded and stretches of Atlantic City’s boardwalk were ripped up.

During the storm, Atlantic City, NJ, which received a direct hit, became an extension of the Atlantic Ocean, with seaweed and ocean debris swirling in knee-deep water.

With the dawning of Tuesday morning, as states began an extensive recovery, the worst is not yet over: Forecasters believe fierce winds will continue to blow from northern Georgia on up into Canada, while heavy rains will continue to soak parts of New England and the Midwest.

While the full scale of Sandy's wrath has yet to be determined, a government prediction believes the storm's wind damage alone could result in more than $7 billion in economic loss.
