Hurricane Sandy was a late-season, and exceptionally large, tropical cyclone in late October to November of 2012. The storm has some unofficial names such as "Superstorm Sandy" and "Frankenstorm" due to its exceptionally large size and wind field, as well as large amounts of snowfall reported in West Virginia, a rare occurrence in a tropical cyclone. Sandy was the second most costliest United States tropical cyclone on record, at $75 billion (2012 USD) in total damages, behind only Hurricane Katrina of 2005.
