Sandy's Path of Destruction

The devastating hurricane upturned the lives of millions as it blasted across the Caribbean and into the U.S., where it made landfall on Oct. 29 in New Jersey. At least 62 deaths are being attributed to Sandy in the Northeast, bringing the death toll to more than 130, according to news reports. More than 8.2 million people in the U.S. lost electricity, according to the U.S. Energy Dept., and insured losses may exceed $6 billion in the U.S., according to estimates from Kinetic Analysis, compiled by Bloomberg.
