Sandy-torn Northeast Deals With More Wind, Water

A nor'easter has brought gusting winds, rain, snow and the threat of flooding.

Yet, some in the storm-ravaged Northeast just shrugged, dug in and stayed put.

Under ordinary circumstances, a storm of this sort wouldn't be a big deal. But large swaths of the landscape are still an open wound, with the electrical system highly fragile and many of Sandy's victims still mucking out their homes and cars and shivering in the deepening cold.

Public works crews in New Jersey built up dunes to protect the battered coast, and new evacuations were ordered in a number of communities already emptied by Sandy.

In New York City, police went to low-lying neighborhoods with loudspeakers, urging residents to leave. But Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn't issue mandatory evacuations, and many people stayed.
