s the sun set Monday night, Hurricane Sandy began lashing the eastern United States with high winds and heavy rains, leaving many areas flooded and without power, and killing more than a dozen people.

More than 7 million people in the Northeast are still without electricity, with utility companies warning that it could be days or weeks before power is restored.
