The Most Incredible Hurricane Sandy Photos from Overnight and This Morning
Hurricane Sandy’s devastation along the northern East Coast, including New York City, has left millions without power and underwater. We’ve compiled the most incredible photos we found from overnight and this morning. Be sure to check back, as this post will be updated.
See more photos from New York City last night and read about the power outages and flooding in Jason Howerton’s post on TheBlaze here.
Although mainstream professional photographers have been documenting the storm from its inception and will continue to do so into its aftermath, everyday citizens have snapped stunning images of the historic storm as well. There was even a spinoff of the popular photo filter and sharing site Instagram called “Instacane” (Editor’s note: some on the website are photoshopped, while others are legitimate). Here are a couple.
Here’s a few more images from Flickr photograhers:
These are from Weather.com.
Jesse Schafer and Greg McHale, who run the website On the Real NY (via Instagram), have many photographs of the storm Monday night and into Tuesday. Given that there are a slew of fake photos from the storm circulating on the web (check those out here), there have been questions raised about the validity of the On the Real NY photos, given that they look very bright during a night storm that was supposedly in a blackout. On Instagram, the photos have been defended with some saying a long-exposure technique was used to let more light in.
Speaking of fake photos though, Steve Kastenbaum tweeted the below photo of a traffic sign bent from the storm. Do you believe it?
Time-lapsed videos are being created as well. Check out this one compiled from photos from the New York Times’ live webcam running from the early morning hours of Monday through 7:45 a.m. Tuesday:
CNN pulled together this compilation of video clips of the storm at various locations:
Early morning photos of the aftermath are trickling in as well.
And work for restoration has already begun.

Note: We’ll continue to update this story as more photos, particularly of the storm’s aftermath in morning hours, become available.
