When it appeared in late October, 2012, Hurricane Sandy was declared the largest hurricane ever observed in the Atlantic basin. In preparation for the massive storm, states across the US Eastern Seaboard took precautions including mandatory evacuations and the shutdown of mass transit, bracing for the inevitable impact. In the end, some $65 billion worth of damage was dealt to the country's east coast, as well as widespread power outages, fuel shortages, flooding of subway tunnels, and over a hundred fatalities.
