NEW YORK (AP) - People in the coastal corridor battered by superstorm Sandy are trying to reclaim their routines, even as rescuers comb neighborhoods looking for survivors.

New York City buses have returned to darkened streets eerily free of traffic and the New York Stock Exchange is set to reopen its storied trading floor this morning.

But it is clear that restoring the region to its ordinarily frenetic pace could take days. And that rebuilding the hardest-hit communities and the transportation networks that link them could take considerably longer.

Sandy killed more than 50 people along the U.S. coast and splintered beachfront homes and boardwalks up to New England.

You can help victims out east by sending a text donation. Each text is worth $10, and you can donate up to five times. The money will be taken from your monthly cell phone bill.

• REDCROSS to 90999 to support the American Red Cross
• STORM to 80888 to give to the Salvation Army
• HUMANE to 80888 for the American Humane Association
• UWHC to 52000 to the United Way of Hudson County, N.J.
