Hurricane Sandy disrupts Northeast telecom networks

Power outages and flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy disrupted telecommunications services on Tuesday resulting in spotty coverage for cellphones, home telephones and Internet services.

Verizon Communications (VZ.N), which serves many of the states in the hurricane's path, appeared to have suffered some of the worst damage from the storm.
