AP -- Just before its centre reached land, the storm was stripped of hurricane status, but the distinction was purely technical, based on its shape and internal temperature. It still packed hurricane-force wind, and forecasters were careful to say it remained every bit as dangerous to the 50 million people in its path.
A piece of wood with exposed nails juts out of the bathroom wall above the toilet in Carolyn and Kendall Coleman's mobile home in the Tall Oak Estates mobile home park in Dover Township, York County, Pa. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012 in the wake of superstorm Sandy. Carolyn Coleman, 69, who has lived in this home with her husband for 13 years, said she had been in the other end of the home when "the trailer shook and then I heard the bang and then the crash." After commenting she wouldn't be able to replace the wallpaper and the shattered mirror -- which she has had for 13 years - she and her husband joked about keeping the rod in place and using it to store toilet paper.
