At Least 17 People Dead in Sandy's Wake 10/30/12
October 30, 2012
NEW YORK - Superstorm Sandy is winding down and inching its way inland, leaving at least 17 people in seven states dead and more than 7 million power outages in its wake.
New York was one of the hardest hit areas when an unprecedented 13-foot surge of seawater--3 feet above the previous record--caused the worst damage in the 108-year history of the city's subway system.
It also forced 200 patients to be evacuated from one hospital. Forecasters say the massive storm is moving across Pennsylvania and is expected to take a sharp turn into western New York by tomorrow morning.
