In Photos: Mass Transit Damaged By Superstorm Sandy

Superstorm Sandy had caused huge damages to all of the mass transit systems especially in New York City and New Jersey.

The New York City’s subway system will be reopened on Thursday but it will be offering only limited services.

The subways:

The South Ferry Whitehall St. subway exit in the financial district of Manhattan is shown in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in this still image taken from video released by New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (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.

Floodwaters that poured into New York’s deepest subway tunnels may pose the biggest obstacle to the city’s recovery from the worst natural disaster in the transit system’s 108-year history but on Wednesday Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced limited subway service will resume on Thursday. (AP Photo/Metropolitan Transportation Authority)

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.
