WEDNESDAY, Oct. 31 (HealthDay News) -- As the most powerful storm to hit the U.S. Northeast in a generation rolled toward Canada Wednesday morning, it leaves behind at least 51 dead and millions without power in the cities and towns that were unlucky enough to be in its path.

Sandy -- which started as a hurricane until being dubbed a post-tropical cyclone Tuesday -- made landfall near Atlantic City, N.J., Monday evening, flooding much of that city as 80 mph winds drove seawater inland, The New York Times reported.

Overall, an estimated 6.8 million people across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region were still without power Wednesday morning, including much of New York City. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that 2.04 million people across New York state were without power. In New Jersey, more than 2 million people are without electricity, as are 933,000 in Pennsylvania, 497,000 in Connecticut, 145,000 in Maryland and 155,000 in Massachusetts.

Hundreds of bridges and roads are still impassable or closed throughout the region and more than 16,000 flights had been cancelled at major airports as of Wednesday, the Washington Post reported. Eqecat, a company that predicts the costs of catastrophes for insurance companies, said Sandy's economic damage could total $10 billion to $20 billion, the newspaper reported.

Important access tunnels to New York City were flooded or shut down, as was the transit system for the nation's largest city. The subway system, which was flooded at the storm's peak, is not expected to open for days, according to the Times.

News reports have estimated the death toll from the storm so far at 51, including: a man and a woman in Morris County, N.J., who died when a tree fell onto their car; two boys in North Salem, N.Y., ages 11 and 13, who perished when a tree collapsed on their house; and Claudene Christiane
