In 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit the Atlantic with full force, leaving behind a trail of destruction. At the time it measured the largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded, its diameter spanning a whopping 1,150 miles (1,850 km) and its tropical-storm-force winds wreaking havoc across eight countries, from the Caribbean to Canada. The storm caused nearly $70 billion (2012 USD) in damage and tragically took the lives of 233 people. Despite the devastation, the disaster prompted widespread efforts to rebuild and prepare for future storms.
