Hurricane Sandy uprooted this tree - with a chunk of sidewalk and curb - in Methuen, Mass. The storm hit land hundreds of miles away Monday, but winds at its edge were strong enough to down power lines and trees throughout New England. More than 300,000 homes and businesses were without power in Massachusetts on Tuesday morning. (Photo by Mary Schwalm / The Eagle-Tribune, North Andover, Mass.)
