At least 21 deaths in the U.S., millions without power, major flooding… Hurricane Sandy makes unimaginable damage to cities on the East Coast.

Check out this compilation of images of all the flooding throughout Manhattan.

This image is from a friend’s facebook and was taken near my high school one block from the Hudson River. The ledge that the man is walking across is about 3 or 4 feet high.

An image that shows how destructive the wind was.

The wind bent this steel post at a 90 degree angle.

Please keep everyone affected by this storm in your thoughts. The city is currently still on lock down as the tunnels are blocked and public transportation has been shut down. I don’t think people in the city have ever experienced anything like this and it can be very terrifying. And let’s not forget those who own houses on the shores who have their houses and possessions being washed away.

**UPDATE**

Unfortunately, you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet. Check out these 7 widely shared fake hurricane Sandy photos.
