Power has been restored to nearly 80 percent of utility customers in the New York City area who were blacked out by Super Storm Sandy, but a nor’easter loomed and that could set back efforts to return to normal.
New Yorkers felt the rumble of subway trains for the first time in four days on Thursday but gasoline shortages persisted in the Northeast and emergency crews struggled to reach the worst-hit areas and restore power to millions of people.
Wall Street and two major airports reopened, and National Guardsmen rushed to rescue flood victims as the Northeast limped into recovery mode Wednesday, two days after being pummeled by epic Hurricane Sandy.
Superstorm Sandy slammed into the U.S. east coast on Tuesday and hurled a record 14-foot surge of seawater at New York City, flooded the financial district and left 7 million people without power.
Sandy has made landfall along the coast of southern New Jersey. While downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, it still has sustained winds of 85 mph.
Hurricane Sandy began veering as predicted early Monday on a path that would take it over Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York putting it on a path that could endanger 50 million people.
Hurricane Sandy, a rare, late season storm, is already having a significant economic impact and is poised to be one for the record books in both meteorological and economic terms.
