WASHINGTON, D.C. (WFSB) -

The U.S. Geological Survey has released a series of photographs showing the damage left by Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast.

The photos show "coastal change fromas far south as the Outer Banks of North Carolina to as far north as Massachusetts," according to the USGS.

"Sandy taught us yet again that not all Cat-1 hurricanes are created equal: The superstorm's enormous fetch over the Atlantic produced storm surge and wave erosion of historic proportions," said USGS Director Marcia McNutt. "We have seized this opportunity to gather unique data on a major coastline-altering event."
