As the total death toll from Hurricane Sandy reaches close to 100 in the US, interest in videos showing the havoc wreaked by the storm continues unabated.

Dramatic footage depicting key events during the storm is appearing on video hosting sites such as youtube.com.

One of the most watched videos showing the storm as it raged across the US east coast is of an explosion at a Con Edison power station on 14th Street in New York.

The explosion, which resulted in almost every street below Times Square in the city's Midtown district being plunged into darkness on Monday night, was caught on video and quickly uploaded to youtube and has attracted over 6.8m viewers.
