Hurricane Sandy left a trail of devastation from the Caribbean to some parts of North Carolina, West Virginia, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
Sandy has caused mass devastation and has ruined the lives of many people living in the areas hardest hit. People have died and homes have been destroyed.
The storm was blamed for more than 2.8 million outages across the Northeast.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families affected by this tragedy.
Small steps are currently being made on a long road to recovery for the victims of what some meteorologist called the “perfect storm”.
The vessel HMS Bounty, a replica of the historic British vessel, off North Carolina’s coast was overpowered by the storm. Fourteen of the ship’s crew of 16 were rescued, one deckhand was found dead Monday evening and the ship’s captain was still missing Monday night.
President Barack Obama didn’t hesitate in responding. Both presidential candidates postponed campaigning to assist the victims, since the storm caused its devastation days before the 2012 election.
