ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST:
From NPR News, this is ALL THINGS CONSIDERED. I'm Robert Siegel.
AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:
I'm Audie Cornish. And we begin this hour with Sandy by the numbers. At least 39 people on the East Coast have died, as a result of the massive storm.
SIEGEL: Sixty-nine are dead in the Caribbean.
CORNISH: Eight-point two million people, in the U.S., are without power.
SIEGEL: And while it's too early for an accurate tally, insured losses alone are estimated at 5- to $10 billion.
