THE LATEST ON HURRICANE SANDY: Almost six million people are without power while Sandy slams the east coast. The tropical super storm made landfall in New Jersey last night and has even gone as far as shutting down Wall Street and the subway systems in NYC. Sandy is also responsible for at least 14 deaths. Although crews are working to restore power, folks without can expect to remain in the dark for the rest of the week.
