Fox News is reporting millions along the U.S. East Coast awoke Tuesday without power or mass transit, and huge swaths of New York City were unusually dark and abandoned in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. At least 18 people were killed in seven states. The storm made landfall in New Jersey on Monday evening with hurricane force winds, and cut power to at least 7.4 million people.
New York was among the hardest hit, with the storm causing the worst damage in the 108-year history of New York's subway system. But the full extent of the damage in New Jersey was being revealed as morning arrived. Emergency crews fanned out to rescue hundreds. The death toll from Sandy in the U.S. climbed to 18, including several killed by falling trees.
