Shocking Photos After The Hurricane Sandy
The New York region began the daunting process on Tuesday of rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, a storm that remade the landscape and rewrote the record books as it left behind a tableau of damage, destruction and grief.
The toll in lives disrupted or lost and communities washed out was staggering. A rampaging fire reduced more than 100 houses to ash in Breezy Point, Queens. Explosions and downed power lines left the lower part of Manhattan and 90 percent of Long Island in the dark. The New York City subway system a lifeline for millions was paralyzed by flooded tunnels and was expect to remain silent for days. Below we have gathered the most shocking photos after the devastation from the sources such as New York Times, Guardian and ABC News.
