Water from the Hudson River crashes along the shore in Battery Park in New York, October 29, 2012. Hurricane Sandy, the monster storm bearing down on the U.S. East Coast, strengthened on Monday after hundreds of thousands moved to higher ground, public transport shut down and the U.S. stock market suffered its first weather-related closure in 27 years.REUTERS/Brendan McDermid
