Hurricane Sandy, as of this writing, has been responsible for at least 88 US deaths, along with 43 in the Caribbean, making it the 4th deadliest hurricane in US history. It also left millions without power and will cost the US billions. Sandy was a very unique storm, making landfall as a category 1 hurricane and then became a post-tropical storm, bringing blizzard conditions to the Appalachian mountains and surrounding areas, with up to 3 feet of snow in some locations! She made landfall Monday evening, very close to Atlantic City, where major damage occurred along the Jersey Shore.
