NEW YORKMayor Michael Bloomberg canceled the New York City Marathon after mounting criticism that it was wrong to hold it while the region is still recovering from superstorm Sandy. The cost of the storm could exceed $18 billion in New York alone. Gov. Andrew Cuomo told utilities to step up power repair work or risk losing business in the state. With fuel shortages, motorists fumed in long lines at gas stations around New York City. All three of the city's major airports were back open. Subway and commuter rail services were partly restored. The state created a $100 million fund to help people hit the hardest. Deaths: 48, including 41 in New York City. Power outages: Nearly 1.2 million, down from 2.2 million.
