People look at destruction in  South Street Seaport  October 30, 2012 as New Yorkers  clean up the morning after Hurricane Sandy made landfall.

The death toll from superstorm Sandy has risen to 16 in the mainland United States and Canada, and was expected to climb further as several people were still missing, officials said Tuesday.  Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and North Carolina reported 15 dead from the massive storm system, and Toronto police said a Canadian woman was killed by flying debris.
