Top News Stories: #3 Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy crashed into the Eastern Seaboard on Oct. 29, killing at least 128 people and leaving more than $71 billion worth of destruction in its wake.

Sandy was dubbed a superstorm as it continued its progression over the East Coast. The torrential wind and rain knocked out power to some parts of New York City, leaving homes and businesses in the dark for days and blacking out half the nighttime skyline of Manhattan.
