A major storm bringing torrential rain, high winds, flood surges and heavy snow has made landfall on the east US coast.

Sandy, now a post-tropical cyclone, passed over the New Jersey coast packing winds of about 80 miles per hour.

Up to 60 million people could be affected, with hundreds of thousands ordered to evacuate homes. More than a million people have lost power.

Transport has halted in eastern cities, and thousands of flights are grounded.
