Sandy's Fury

More photographs that captured Sandy’s fury when she pounded New York:

Thanks to Sri Bala Murugan for sharing the photos. Epic wet!

Sandy has been said to be responsible for at least 70 deaths in the US, knocking out power to more than 8 million customers in 20 states from South Carolina to Maine and disrupted travel and transit systems, including New York City’s subway.

Insured loses from Sandy may be $7 billion (RM21.4 billion) to $15 billion, including damage to property, business interruption costs and expenses for displaced residential customers, according to catastrophe modeler AIR Worldwide.

The higher figure would make Sandy the third costliest US hurricane, after Katrina, which caused more than $40 billion in losses in 2005, and 1992’s Hurricaane Andrew.

Sunway University’s Ravelution Music Club is busking for charity and this photo was taken at the cafeteria on Friday. The students are performing at six locations from October 29 to November 18, 2012. All proceeds go to Hospis Malaysia.
