'Superstorm' pounds East Coast

New York City awakened today to a flooded subway system, shuttered financial markets and hundreds of thousands of people without power a day after a wall of seawater and high winds slammed into the city, destroying buildings and flooding tunnels. Scenes of the damage were found everywhere on the East Coast and even inland. Here is just a sampling of photos of the event from the Associated Press.
