CNN's Erin Burnett has the latest on the impact of Sandy as search and rescue continues in the northeast.
One of the hardest hit areas was Seaside Heights, which saw its homes and iconic boardwalk decimated by "Superstorm" Sandy. Mayor Bill Akers tells Erin Burnett the most crucial issue he is facing are gas leaks. He is OutFront.
Sandy's wallop leaves Northeast reeling
They've lost their homes, their businesses and many are still stranded - but residents in the hurricane-battered northeast are overcoming the after effects of Superstorm Sandy with a gritty resolve.
"It's sort of like the transit strike a few years ago," said Elizabeth Gorman, 40, a Queens resident, who walked across the Queensboro Bridge Wednesday.
Gorman was part of a steady stream of commuters forced to walk or bike into New York City, after Sandy roared ashore barely two days ago, wiping out roads, bridges and mass transit systems across the northeast.
