Transport links get back to normal after Sandy

Transport links across the northeast coast of US are starting to get back to normal after storm Sandy.

All but three subway lines in New York have partially re-opened.

Authorities have been working around the clock to clean up the flooded network.

All three of New York’s major airports have now reopened.

A limited number of flights started operating out of La Guardia earlier following yesterday’s total shutdown.

At least 180 flights took off from JFK and a similar number at Newark.

Further up the coast, New Jersey residents are still struggling with the after-effects of Sandy and the clean-up operation is going.

Risk consultancy Eqecat estimates that Sandy has caused some 20 billion dollars (15 billion euros) in insured losses.
