Two days after Superstorm Sandy battered the Eastern Seaboard, the JFK and Newark airports reopened, the New York Stock Exchange was trading on generator power, and parts of the NYC subway system were set to be back in operation Thursday.

Despite showing signs of life, much of the East Coast remained crippled, with as many as 6 million people from North Carolina to as far north as Maine and as far west as Michigan still without power.

According to The Associated Press, National Guard troops in Hoboken, N.J., continued to work to evacuate residents and distribute supplies, while fires that destroyed several homes in Mantoloking, N.J., rekindled due to natural gas leaks.

We’ve gathered some resources for those of you looking for on-the-ground reporting from the areas hardest hit by the storm, including damage assessments and transit trackers.
