NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 29: Hospital workers evacuate patient Deborah Dadlani from NYU Langone Medical Center during Hurricane Sandy the evening of October 29, 2012 in New York City. More than 200 patients were evacuated from the hospital after backup generators failed due to flooding following a power outage. The storm has claimed at least 16 lives in the United States, and has caused massive flooding across much of the Atlantic seaboard. US President Barack Obama has declared the situation a ‘major disaster’ for large areas of the US East Coast including New York City. (Photo by Michael Heiman/Getty Images)
