All of Gizmodo's Hurricane Sandy Coverage

Hurricane Sandy was no joke, it rampaged through New York, New Jersey and the rest of the Northeast and left damage everywhere. People died, buildings were destroyed, flooding happened everywhere, electrical plants exploded and the power is still out in many places.


We've rounded up all our coverage of Hurricane Sandy so you guys can follow along. Stay safe everybody.

Our definitive live coverage of Hurricane Sandy dating back from Sunday and still being updated now can be found here. [Gizmodo Emergency]


How You Can Help Hurricane Sandy Survivors

Just hours after Hurricane Sandy decimated the Eastern Seaboard, killing 17 and leaving more than 10 million without power, rescue and recovery efforts from North Carolina to New York City have already begun. Even if you don't live in the regions affected by this super storm, you can still do your part by donating money, blood, and sweat equity to charitable organizations-here's how. [Gizmodo]



What It Will Take to Repower NYC

Hurricane Sandy has left more than 780,000 customers from Manhattan out to Westchester County without power, dwarfing ConEd's last major blackout, when Hurricane Irene nixed just over 200,000. So what's it going to take to restore service to three quarters of a million New Yorkers? Surprisingly, it's less than you think. [Gizmodo]



Giz Explains: What It Takes to Restore Cellular Service After a Hurricane

Hurricane Sandy and left an estimated eight million people without power. Plenty more have spotty cellular service-if they have any at all. But why do some people get a signal when others don't? And what does it take to get a wireless service back online? [Gizmodo]



Why Salt Water in the Subway Is So Extremely Dangerous

Hurricane Sandy's storm surge, which bulged into New York Harbor on Monday night, inundated much of lower Manhattan, parts of Brooklyn, and the barrier islands like the Rockaways in Queens. The water got into some of the city's subway, automobile, and electrical tunnels, and pumping the water out and bringing those tunnels back into working order is going to be a tall order-we're talking many days or weeks to complete.

How Long Is the Food in Your Fridge Safe to Eat After the Power Goes Out?

According to the USDA, if the power has been out less than four hours, refrigerated food is probably fine. But since it's likely that this storm will keep the lights off for days-if not longer-you're going to have to be a little more scientific in your assessment. [Gizmodo]
