PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia regularly contacts RA diplomatic outposts
in the U.S., Foreign Ministry spokesman Tigran Balayan told a
PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, commenting on the Hurricane Sandy in
New York.

According to BusinessDay, at least 15 people were reported killed
in the U.S. by Sandy, one of the biggest storms to hit the country,
which dropped just below hurricane status before making landfall on
Monday, October 29 night in New Jersey.

More than 1-million people in a dozen states were under
orders to evacuate as the massive system plowed westward. One
disaster-forecasting company predicted economic losses could ultimately
reach $20bn, with only half of that amount insured.
