The American states of New Jersey and Vermont are struggling with their worst flooding in decades. It follows a massive storm which churned up the U.S. East Coast, killing at least 38 over the weekend. Hurricane Irene, later downgraded to a tropical storm, also caused power outages in over 5 million homes and businesses across the country. Total economic damage from the disaster could reach 20 billion U.S. dollars.
