The New York City Skyline At Night From New Jersey
Times Square At Midnight On New Years Eve
BRUTAL STORM OF MY LIFETIME! SOURCE: The Atlantic
Last night, Hurricane Sandy — the largest Atlantic tropical system on record — made landfall just south of Atlantic City, New Jersey, bringing winds up to 90 mph (150 kph), and pushing a massive storm surge onto beaches and shorelines. At least 12 deaths have been reported in the United States. These fatalities, when added to the previous toll in the Caribbean, leave Sandy responsible for more taking more than 80 lives to date.
Millions across the Eastern Seaboard are now without power, and even more are struggling with rising floodwater. Sandy continues northward, now downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, and those affected are now assessing the damage. Collected here are images of Sandy’s aftermath, many from New York City, which suffered widespread blackouts and a record-setting high tide early this morning.
