Hurricane Sandy left Bahamas late Friday and is now heading northward toward the U.S. East Coast, where it threatens to join with winter weather fronts to create a super storm.

At least 43 people were killed across the Caribbean.

A British CEO of an investment bank was reported killed in Bahamas due to the category 1 Hurricane Sandy.

Officials at Deltec Bank & Trust identified him as Timothy Fraser-Smith.

On Thursday Hurricane Sandy pounded Cuba as a category 2 hurricane killing at least 11 people in eastern Santiago and Guantanamo provinces.

In Haiti at least 29 people were killed by Hurricane Sandy.
