New Yorkers awoke to widespread powercuts and flooding on Tuesday, after Superstorm Sandy hit the city on Monday evening. An unprecedented 13-foot (3.9-metre) surge of seawater - 3 feet (90 centimetres) above the previous record - gushed into lower Manhattan, inundating tunnels, subway stations and the electrical system that powers Wall Street.
Superstorm Sandy slammed into the New Jersey coastline and hurled a record-breaking 13-foot (4-meter) surge of seawater at New York City on Monday, roaring ashore after washing away part of the Atlantic City boardwalk and putting the presidential campaign on hold.
