Battered by a record storm surge of nearly 14 feet of water, large sections of New York City remained submerged under several feet of water.

Subway and commuter tunnels under New York City, which carry several million riders a day, were under several feet of water.

At least 45 people were killed in nine states.

There was a huge fire that destroyed houses in the flooded  Breezy Point and Belle Harbor, blizzards hit Appalachia, no power for millions, a storm surge up to 14 feet and rain that caused flooding.

Sandy aftermath photos remind me of the March 2011 Japan tsunami aftermath.
