Hurricane Irene - After the Storm
WASHINGTON - While not packing the wallop forecasters initially feared, Hurricane Irenes three-day assault on the East Coast still left plenty of devastation in its wake.
As the nation headed back to work Monday, millions of residents from North Carolina to Maine likely were still waking up in the dark and dodging downed trees during their commute.
The breadth of the storms damage (ranging into Canada), dangerous floodwaters, and widespread power outages will be Irenes legacies. More than 4 million East Coast homes and businesses still lacked power Sunday night.
