It's no longer classified a hurricane, but that's doesn't mean much to the folks who are feeling the effects of superstorm Sandy.
The National Hurricane Center now says Sandy is a post-tropical cyclone and while it's losing strength, it still has sustained winds at 85 mph. The center of the enormous storm made landfall at 8 p.m. (Eastern) near Atlantic City. It's merging with Arctic cold and a winter storm from the West.
Forecasters say the storm is still a vast and dangerous hybrid storm. It's already knocked out electricity to more than 3 million customers.
The storm is blamed for at least ten deaths.
