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.

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.

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.
