Sandy moves west, leaving devastation, deaths in its wake

(Continued)

NEW YORK —

More than two feet of snow fell in western Maryland and nearly as much in West Virginia, according to the advisory.

"For the major cities of the east the worst of the weather is done," said Tom Kines, a meteorologist at AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pa. "Eventually, over the next 24 hours, the system will rain itself out."

New York City may have some rain showers later today while overall the weather gradually improves, Kines said. The weakened storm will move into southern Canada later this week.

The storm left 8.11 million electricity customers without power in 17 states and the District of Columbia, from South Carolina to Maine and as far west as Michigan and Indiana, according to the Department of Energy, including 62 percent without power in New Jersey, and 31 percent in Connecticut.

Power was lost in Manhattan "river to river," south of 35th Street, Bloomberg said Monday night. Some of the blackout was deliberate, as Consolidated Edison Co. shut off electricity to protect its underground equipment from potential damage, said Chris Olert, a spokesman for the company.

The mayor this morning issued a message urging city employees to report to work and help with recovery operations if they could do so safely.

A flood gauge at Battery Park, at the southernmost end of Manhattan, registered at 13.88 feet at 9:24 p.m. Monday, beating the modern record of 10.02 feet in September 1960 during Hurricane Donna, the National Weather Service said.

New York University's Langone Medical Center evacuated 215 patients, including infants from its neo-natal intensive care unit, and transported them to other hospitals when it lost power and backup systems failed.

A fire in Breezy Point in the New York City borough of Queens had about 198 firefighters working to contain a blaze that had destroyed at least 50 homes and left two people with minor injuries, a New York Fire Department official said Tuesday.
