Thursday November 1, 2012 Happening Now

We are just now beginning to know the scope of the destruction from Superstorm Sandy. Aerial shots giving us a better picture of just how bad the damage is across New Jersey, New York, Connecticut - the list goes on.

Recovery efforts intensifying today.. with thousands of utility workers pouring into the tri-state area to try and get power restored across the hardest hit areas.

Power is still out for hundreds of thousands (as some of you can attest).

Many shoreline communities are destroyed either partially or fully.

In New York City, very limited subway service is resuming today, but power is STILL out for most people south of 39th Street and in much of suburban New Jersey. JFK and Newark resumed limited operations yesterday afternoon, the stock exchange reopened and some Broadway shows even went on last night.

It is especially bad in the New Jersey town of Hoboken where many New York City workers live.. power still out and flooding is widespread.

President Obama toured the destruction yesterday with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in rare show of bipartisanship.

The President returns to the campaign trail today with stops in Wisconsin, Nevada, Colorado and Ohio.

Mister Romney is campaigning in Virginia.
