As Hurricane Sandy moved over the mid-Atlantic states, heavily populated areas in the region experienced high winds and severe flooding, including New York City.
At least half a dozen states — Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania — had declared a state of emergency and requested federal assistance.
At least 34 deaths have been blamed on the storm, according to The Associated Press, and the economic impact of the storm may not be fully realized for days or weeks. Images continue to come in as residents gauge the damage in affected areas, with an estimated 7 million people without power.
