In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, digital consultant Whitney Hess began collecting the names and stories of the storm’s casualties, posting them on her blog. New York reporters, helped by police sources, medical examiners, and emergency-management workers, expanded on her effort, producing the roster below last Thursday night. Victims whose names have not been released were not included; nor were those from Haiti and Canada. The list of fatalities is expected to change as investigators and relief crews continue their work.
