    Superstorm Sandy blamed for at least 11 US deaths as it slams East Coast

    Superstorm Sandy blamed for at least 11 U.S. deaths as it slams East Coast This Just In - CNN.com Blogs

    Editor's Note: Sandy unleashed powerful winds and torrential rains Monday in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast as it sped toward shore. Subways and bridges were shut down and streets were quiet as gusts howled over a huge region encompassing hundreds of miles. At 7 p.m., the National Hurricane Center stopped classifying Sandy as a hurricane, though it still continued to pack a wallop.
    I've even seen reports of maybe up to 20 deaths including a Canadian. Let's keep them in our thoughts, and be grateful that it wasn't worse.

    Fox News is saying at least 33. At least 33 dead, millions without power in Sandy's aftermath | Fox News

    Obama declared a state of emergency in New York and New Jersey, I think.

    I just saw pictures of Queens where it seems that a fire wiped out mist of a whole neighborhood near Rockaway. I didn't see where any deaths were associated with it so that's good.
