Superstorm Sandy: The Fallout

The "superstorm" Sandy ripped through the Mid-Atlantic region on Monday. Hundreds of thousands of Washington area residents lost power, and millions more on the East Coast woke up without electricity. Government offices, schools and public transportation remain closed. And coastal area residents are also just beginning the work of damage assessment and repair. We get an update from public officials, utilities and reporters who are following the storm's aftermath.
