A man looks through the debris of his destroyed home after Hurricane Sandy on October 30, 2012 in the Rockaway section of the Brooklyn borough of New York City. At least 40 people were reportedly killed in the U.S. by Sandy as millions of people in the eastern United States have awoken to widespread power outages, flooded homes and downed trees. New York City was hit especially hard with wide spread power outages and significant flooding in parts of the city.

NEW YORK - Nearly two weeks after Superstorm Sandy, authorities continue to discover its victims.

An autopsy is being conducted today on a 64-year-old man who was found dead in the living room of his flooded home on New York's Staten Island.

Police officers found the body yesterday afternoon after being flagged down by a concerned neighbor.

The house sat yards from the ocean in the devastated Midland Beach neighborhood.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

More than 100 deaths are blamed on the storm. The figure has fluctuated as authorities release more information.
