The storm, 900 miles wide, drove floodwaters to life-threatening levels in a region with 60 million residents and stopped the U.S. presidential race eight days before Election Day. It shut government offices, prevented U.S. stock markets from opening and caused damage that may add up to billions of dollars. At least 3.6 million homes and businesses were without power as of 8 p.m. on Oct. 29.
