An historic ferry boat named the Binghamton is swamped by the waves on the Hudson River in Edgewater, N.J., Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 as Hurricane Sandy lashed the East Coast. As it drew near, Sandy moved closer to converging with two cold-weather systems to form a superstorm of snow, rain and wind. Forecasters warned of 20-foot waves bashing into the Chicago lakefront and up to 3 feet of snow in West Virginia. (AP Photo/Craig Ruttle)
