Hurricane Sandy made landfall overnight, and the damage in the Mid-Atlantic region is startling. With pounding rain and winds over 90 miles per hour, approximately 6.5 million people are now without power, including more than 600,000 in lower Manhattan, after a Consolidated Edison substation at 14th Street and FDR Drive exploded.
