s millions of people in the northeast begin dealing with the devastation left by Hurricane Sandy, the weakening but still powerful superstorm churned its way farther north, stretching from the Great Lakes to New England. Millions remained without power early Wednesday, and the U.S. death toll from the storm climbed to at least 50. President Obama warned that the nation could still face more flooding and damage, promising "no red tape" as local, state, and federal agencies rush to aid battered communities. The storm, the biggest to hit New York and New Jersey in a generation, swamped the gambling resort of Atlantic City and flooded New York City's subway, shutting it down. The so-called Frankenstorm, which collided with two winter-weather systems, also dumped three feet of snow on parts of West Virginia.
