NEW YORK - North American deaths from Sandy, the massive storm that tore through the US East Coast, rose to at least 76 on Thursday as deaths reported in New York City jumped substantially.

The latest New York City death count has risen to 34, New York City police said on Thursday morning. Fifteen of the city's dead were found on Staten Island, whose south-eastern flank took the full brunt of the Atlantic storm surge.

The storm, at one point extending 1,000 miles (1,609 km) in diameter, has wound down into a broad weather system that is making its way north into Canada. It knocked out power for millions and crippled transportation systems along the densely populated coastal region. The last of its effect are being felt over the Appalachian mountains.
