Sandy's Death Toll Rises, Even as East Coast Struggles Back to Life
Date:11/1/2012

By HealthDay Staff

THURSDAY, Nov. 1 (HealthDay News) -- New York City and other centers hit by "superstorm" Sandy began to restore power and transportation Wednesday and early Thursday, even as the recovery of more bodies pushed the death toll from the storm higher.

More than 75 people are known to have died as the storm barreled its way across the Northeast United States, but officials say that number is likely to rise as more bodies are pulled from the wreckage, the Associated Press reported. Millions are still without electricity.

Still, signs that life will return to normal are appearing. In New York City, officials reopened the Stock Exchange after a two-day shutdown, airports began to resume service and theater lights went on once more. Partial service has been restored to New York City's subway service, but AP reports that traffic in the nation's biggest city remains snarled.

Across the river in New Jersey, the state most agree was hit hardest by the storm, Gov. Chris Christie and President Barack Obama toured the ravaged Jersey shore, promising speedy help for recovery. "We are here for you," Obama said in Brigantine, N.J. "We are not going to tolerate red tape. We are not going to tolerate bureaucracy."

Sandy -- which started as a hurricane until being dubbed a post-tropical cyclone Tuesday -- made landfall near Atlantic City, N.J., Monday evening.

Millions have seen power restored to their homes. Overall, an estimated 4.6 million people across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region were still without power Thursday morning, down from a peak of 8.5 million, the AP said. The AP reported Wednesday that 1.6 million people across New York state were without power. In New Jersey, more than 1.76 million people are without electricity, as are 525,000 in Pennsylvania, 378,000 in Connecticut, more than 47,000 in Maryland and just under 20,000 in Massachusetts.
