Hurricane/Cyclone Sandy - Update

8.2 million people in 20 states are without power across the East coast from Hurricane Sandy, at least 35 deaths had been confirmed so far. The AP has it at 40 in the US, with most victims killed by falling trees. That includes at least 12 in New York City.

In New York City, the 13-foot storm surge caused severe flooding. The storm was a “post-tropical cyclone” when it hit the east coast but it still packed hurricane-force wind. The NTC subway system will also be closed until further notice.

  • A helicopter rescue mission happened yesterday for the 17-man crew of the tall ship "HMS Bounty," - the ship appeared in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest” and fans can take trips on it. Unfortunately, one person died and the captain is still missing at sea.
