NEW YORK (PIX11) — Ten years ago, Superstorm Sandy slammed into New York and New Jersey, killing dozens and causing an estimated $19 billion in damage in the five boroughs.

Sandy hit New York City on Oct. 29, 2012. Hundreds of thousands were left without power. More than 650,000 homes were ripped apart in New York and New Jersey.

“This storm is going to explode with wind and rain,” PIX11’s Mr. G predicted before the storm hit.
