Video: MEGADETH Bassist Checks Out Damage Caused By Superstorm Sandy

MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson visited Long Island, New York to check out some of the damage caused by superstorm Sandy prior to the band's November 10 performance at The Paramount in Huntington on the "Countdown To Extinction" 20th-anniversary tour. Check out the footage below.

Thousands of Long Island residents remained without power Saturday 10 days after after Sandy struck, causing a loss of $750 million in economic activity in Nassau County.

It is estimated that Sandy may have caused $50 billion in economic losses from the Carolinas to Maine, including property damage, lost business and extra living expenses.

The 20th-anniversary edition of MEGADETH's 1992 double platinum-certified "Countdown To Extinction" album was released on November 6 via Capitol/EMI.
