Sandy, downgraded from a hurricane but described as a "superstorm", is churning north and heading for Canada.
In New York, seawater poured into road tunnels and the subway system.
The disaster-estimating firm Eqecat has forecast that Sandy could cause economic losses to the US of between £6.2bn-£12.4bn.
In the previous week, Sandy killed more than 80 people as it carved a path of destruction through the Caribbean.
