Sandy still hundreds of miles offshore but effects being felt across the globe as transport shuts down

CBS News: Hurricane Sandy grounded thousands of flights in the U.S. northeast Monday and upended travel plans across the globe, stranding passengers from Hong Kong to Europe.

The massive storm threatens to bring a near halt to air travel for at least two days in a key region for both domestic and international flight.

And to add to the travel chaos the mass transit systems of New York City, Boston and New Jersey have also been shut down with Hurricane Sandy lingering hundreds of miles offshore packing its 90mph punch.
