The wrath of Hurricane Sandy and the scope of the storm's damage has been detailed in a new report from the National Hurricane Center.
According to the report, Sandy was the deadliest hurricane in the northeastern U.S. in 40 years and the second-costliest in the nation's history.
The Center attributed 72 U.S. deaths directly to Sandy, from Maryland to New Hampshire.
No other hurricane killed more people in the northeast since Hurricane Agnes killed 122 in 1972.
At least 87 other deaths were indirectly tied to Sandy.
The storm caused an estimated $50 billion in damage, more than any U.S. hurricane except Katrina.
The highest storm surge in New York was measured at more than 12 feet, at King's Point in Nassau County.
