The Most Shocking Photos After the Devastation of Hurricane Sandy

The New York region began the daunting process on Tuesday of rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, a storm that remade the landscape and rewrote the record books as it left behind a tableau of damage, destruction and grief.

The toll in lives disrupted or lost and communities washed out was staggering. A rampaging fire reduced more than 100 houses to ash in Breezy Point, Queens. Explosions and downed power lines left the lower part of Manhattan and 90 percent of Long Island in the dark. The New York City subway system a lifeline for millions was paralyzed by flooded tunnels and was expect to remain silent for days. Below we have gathered the most shocking photos after the devastation from the sources such as New York Times, Guardian and ABC News.

    About a third of these photos deal with ruined cars. Where are the dramatic photos of the people who are now homeless because of the storm? Personally, I am more concerned with people than vehicles.

      Hello Eric, Well to be honest, I dont find it “right” to capture people’s agony, not to mention that there are many photos NSFW that I am not interested on promoting.

        I have no problem with this set, Evan. Thanks for putting it together.
        But the American focus on materialism always fascinates me. Somehow, “things” always take precedence over “people”. And I really must ask, what was your point in creating this compilation? To show that hurricanes can be devastating? Kind of a no brainer, if you ask me (with personal experience from numerous Florida storms). Or just to collect dramatic photos, with no other agenda? That’s OK, too. Sorry, I have no clue what NSFW means. Again, what was your point?

          Well, I have gathered these shots from various websites from which you could only see a few of those, that was my goal, that people could find these shots gathered together. NSFW means not safe for work by the way :)

            Thanks for the explanation. And thanks for the set. Truly :) Nicely done.
