170-ft tanker grounded by Sandy Tanker run aground on Staten Island (ABC News screen shot)

Alongside explosions, vast flooding and collapsed buildings, New York also saw ships run ashore in Sandy’s wake. ABC News reported early Tuesday that a 168-ft water tanker had been driven into a Staten Island road by the storm. Video footage (below) shows the vessel’s front third lodged on the street out of the water — it had been moored a mile away. ABC reported too that Sandy had ripped some ships in half.
