Superstorm Sandy: Wednesday

Gary Silberman surveys his home that was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy on October 31, 2012 in Lindenhurst, New York. The storm has claimed many lives in the United States and has caused massive flooding across much of the Atlantic seaboard. U.S. President Barack Obama has declared the situation a 'major disaster' for large areas of the U.S. east coast, including New York City, with widespread power outages and significant flooding in parts of the city.
