|Sandy seen from the International Space Station|
A total of forty-three people have been killed by the storm.
Haiti alone has seen twenty-nine people die, as rains have come down non stop since Tuesday.
Cuba, Jamaica, and the Bahamas have each taken direct hits from Sandy.
For part of Friday, Sandy lost part of it's strength, losing hurricane status for a few hours.
Several US states have preemptively declared emergencies, as they brace for impact.
The huge storm could drench a third of the US in rains and winds, and eliminate electricity for sixty million.
Worries are that it will turn into a "super storm" when it collides with the Arctic jet stream, which could cause the worst storm the US has seen in decades.
