Sandy's Aftermath

New York City was the bull’s-eye for Sandy, a record-breaking, 14-foot storm surge that flooded Ground Zero, the subway, and several of the major tunnels connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn and New Jersey, and exploded a transformer that cut power to much of downtown. Fires, massive flooding, and falling trees have wreaked havoc from Maryland, New Jersey and Queens up to Connecticut, with the damage incurred anticipated to cost close to $20 billion, and having claimed 30 lives as of 2 p.m. this afternoon.  Follow this link for photos from the area.  Click Here

But in West Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains, the storm brought temps hovering around freezing and wet snow. Snowfall totals were measured in feet across the state.  The heavy and wet snow caused significant damage to trees and power lines.  Davis, West Virginia was one of the hardest hit areas.  The video below is from Davis.
