Hurricane Sandy was a hurricane that devastated portions of the Caribbean, Mid-Atlantic, Northeastern United States, and Eastern Canada in late October 2012. The eighteenth named storm and tenth hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, Sandy was the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, as measured by diameter, with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km). Sandy is estimated in early calculations to have caused damage of at least $20 billion dollars.
