The storm, 900 miles across, shut the federal government and state administrations from Virginia to Massachusetts. It halted travel, prevented U.S. stock markets from opening and stopped the presidential campaign. It may cause as much as $20 billion in economic damages, according to Eqecat Inc., a risk- management company in Oakland, California.
