Help

A resident in the state of New Jersey has described scenes of "complete devastation" after Sandy struck the US killing more than 40 people.

Speaking to the BBC, Ross Cocheo, who works in a hospital in Summit, said "it was like something out of a movie".

The storm is still causing severe disruption after moving inland from the coast. It is forecast to weaken as it turns north into Canada, but to continue dumping heavy snow and rainfall.
