The ravages of Hurricane Sandy, one year later

Just a year ago, the northeastern states were smashed by Superstorm Sandy, which caused a colossal amount of damage particularly in New Jersey and New York city.

Above is a look at some areas hit hard by Sandy, and for more interactive before-and-after photos, you can head here.
