Recovery efforts are ongoing in the parts of the U.S. devastated by Hurricane Sandy earlier this week.

More than 90 people have been confirmed dead so far as rescuers fan out over the hardest hit areas. The storm's price tag may amount to $50 billion when all is said and done.

In New York, the city's subway and rail system was slowly returning to service.

Still, transportation infrastructure remains badly disrupted, leading to fuel shortages. In New York, at least one person was accused of pulling a gun on a motorist at a long line in a gas station, although no one was injured. 

Although millions of people were still without power Monday morning, officials said the lights should be back on in downtown Manhattan sometime this weekend.

Sandy also brought blizzard conditions to West Virginia and the Appalachian states, with as much as 60 centimetres of snow falling in some places.

While parts of the northeastern U.S. took the hardest hit from Sandy, more than 200,000 people were without power in Ontario and Quebec, with multiple trees downed as the storm tore through the region Monday evening.

A much smaller amount of people were in the dark in the Maritimes, but Sandy's strong winds whipped up waves sent significant rainfall to the region.

But the worst of the flooding occurred in parts of the Caribbean -- where the heavy rain triggered landslides and destroyed infrastructure -- and the northeastern U.S.
