Things seem to have been quiet down on Tuesday morning after a life-threatening evening when everybody stayed home and braced for Hurricane Sandy as it continued to unleash its power and made its landfall in Atlantic City.
In New York City, about 750,000 people had no power. In Long Island, more than 90 percent of families have lived in darkness since last night. 10 people were dead due to the hurricane.
New York City is still isolated from the outside world since all tunnels have been shut down and public transportations suspended. A large part of the subway system is flooded.
Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York, spoke on Tuesday morning that the most important thing the authorities have to do now is to restore power and public transportations.
