Superstorm Sandy brought destructive force of the powerful wind gusts, torrential rains and massive storm surges that killed at least 64 people and caused billions of dollars in damages throughout the East Coast.

The Battery Park underpass in New York City took on about 12 feet of water during the storm.

A man uses his mobile phone to photograph a closed and flooded subway station in lower Manhattan, in New York, Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012. Due to superstorm Sandy, New York City awakened Tuesday to a flooded subway system, shuttered financial markets and hundreds of thousands of people without power a day after a wall of seawater and high winds slammed into the city, destroying buildings and flooding tunnels. (AP Photo/Richard Drew)

The subway tunnels were flooded as Hurricane Sandy pounded New York City. 

The flood caused lots of problems to the transit system.

Critical electrical equipment could be ruined.

Track beds could be covered with debris.

Corrosive salt water could have destroyed essential switches, lights, turnstiles and the power-conducting third rail.

This is the worst natural disaster in the New york City subway’s 108-year history.

On Tuesday, some of the tunnels that carry cars and subway trains beneath New York City’s East River are still flooded.

The head of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said it was too early to tell how long it would take to pump them dry and make repairs.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg guessed it could take four days for train service to resume.

Sandy arrived along the East Coast and morphed into a huge and problematic system, putting more than 7.5 million homes and businesses in the dark and causing a number of deaths.

The South Ferry subway station entrance in Lower Manhattan in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is seen in this handout photo from the MTA, in New York, October 30, 2012. One of the biggest questions now is who will pay for the extensive damage to municipal infrastructure, subway tunnels, train tracks, electrical transformers, coastal boardwalks and piers, that Sandy left behind along the East Coast.

A Late April Snowstorm In U.S. Northeast – Photos

It is already spring but it snows again in western Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and western New York.

I think the REUTERS’s photo of the ice and snow coated tulips is very, very beautiful.

It reminded me of the beautiful AP’s photos of the freezing weather in Florida on January 7, 2010 >>> please click here.
