Commuting in and out of New York City remains a big headache today. The subway is running but only on a limited basis. And in an effort to ease traffic congestion, authorities have announced that cars with fewer than three people will not be allowed to enter Manhattan.

Meanwhile, just south in Atlantic City, NJ, an area hit partucularly hard by Sandy, many resdients are coming to grips with situation. "I'm on edge, I am. After that storm that we had, it kind of shook me bad because, like I said, I don't want to die here -- I don't, not in Atlantic City," says Victoria Swinton, a 56-year-old New Jersey resident who was in Atlantic City during Sandy.

Businesses in the area are also assessing the damage. The casinos along the waterfront remain closed and are estimated to be losing $5 million a day.
