Post-Tropical Cyclone Sandy
No longer classified as a hurricane, post-tropical cyclone Sandy made landfall on the southern coast of New Jersey near Atlantic City on October 29 and has caused major devastation to the residents of the area. Now awaits a tough and long period of rebuilding what was destroyed in one of the biggest storms ever to hit the U.S.
Power was restored in parts of Manhattan on Friday night, but many households are still suffering from power failures. Contact your energy supplier if your power is out. See lists of suppliers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut below.
A fuel shortage has reduced the fleet of taxis and caused long lines at gas stations.
Most New York City subway and bus service is restored. MTA's commuter trains are running and most bridges and tunnels are open.
