Weather forecasters said Hurricane Sandy was going to be ugly. And it was.
• Utilities are estimating that at least 5.2 million East Coasters are without power today. Nearly 2 million are in New York and New Jersey. More than 700,000 in the dark live in Manhattan.
• Storm damage is projected to be $10 billion to $20 billion, possibly making it one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history.
• Airlines canceled more than 12,000 flights — 8,900 Sunday and 4,800 yesterday. Metropolitan New York shut down its three airports — two in Queens, the other in Newark, N.J. Aviation officials guaranteed that travel will be disrupted through the week.
