(RNN) - Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary since Superstorm Sandy hit the northeastern U.S.

The video above shows a glimpse of Sandy's strength and scope of the damage caused by last year's storm as it came ashore.

Superstorm Sandy started out as Hurricane Sandy. Although it was a Category 1 storm, it was the largest Atlantic hurricane on record and the second only to Katrina as costliest, according to National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The hurricane merged with a winter storm, making Sandy 1,000 miles wide, and came ashore during high tide.

According to FEMA reports, the massive storm killed at least 162 people and caused nearly $50 billion in property damage.

Much of the debris from the storm is now gone, yet communities are still in the midst of rebuilding.
