Need to Know News: Sandy's wallop leaves Northeast reeling; Will you be able to vote next Tuesday?

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For October 31, 2012 – Sandy's wallop leaves Northeast reeling; transit systems struggling to restart and will you be able to vote next Tuesday? Probably so...

• Sandy's wallop leaves Northeast reeling: "The Northeast Corridor slowly struggled back to life on Wednesday after the knockout punch from Superstorm Sandy. Millions in New York City, New Jersey and other cities and towns along America's most populous urban stretch coped with major losses and daily inconveniences."

• Will you be able to vote next Tuesday? Probably so: "Widespread damage in the East from Superstorm Sandy threw state and local agencies tasked with running next week's election into turmoil, sending them scrambling to make sure they can accommodate voters. It is unlikely voters in the hardest hit states will be given an extension if they cannot access polls, despite damage from the storm."

• Stocks mixed as market reopens for business: "U.S. stocks were mixed at the open Wednesday as the markets reopened following a two-day closure due to Hurricane Sandy. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 0.5% and the S&P 500 gained 0.4% but the Nasdaq was little changed. Volume is expected to be very high as the NYSE, Nasdaq and other markets execute their first trades after two unscheduled days in the dark."

• Eurozone unemployment hits record high: "Unemployment in the eurozone rose in September to a record high of 11.6%, the European Commission's Eurostat statistics agency reported Wednesday. The figure was a slight increase from 11.5% in August."

Transit systems struggling to restart: "While Superstorm Sandy's punch has weakened, its wrath is still being felt. Walloped by severe storm damage and flooding, the New York City area's extensive transportation system is struggling to get back online, while some area airports are resuming service on Wednesday. Other Northeast and mid-Atlantic airport and ground transportation systems were gradually resuming operations."

    I am angry at how the interview with hospital personnel was conducted.....Piers was like a junk yard dog with a bone re: the generators....he simply would NOT let go of it even after the spokesperson SAID he was not there to discuss them./
    I just wish they would have simply pulled their mikes, and ended the interview...period. YES there was failure...no one knows why....YES...people were evacuated safely, and NO...Piers had no business to keep badgering.....shame on him....do not tell me it was under the guise of "reporting" and "investigating".........
