Superstorm Sandy: New York Time-Lapse, Snapped Trees And Reporter Bloopers (VIDEOS)

The sheer power of superstorm Sandy has been shown in a number of videos uploaded to social networking site YouTube.

The storm, which lashed out winds of up to 90mph, snapped fully grown trees like matchsticks and created a 12ft storm surge.

It also caused numerous problems for reporters stuck outside trying to cover it.
