This program is captioned live. Tonight - New York devastated after the storm of a lifetime. The chilling first police interview with collar bomber Paul Peters. A red-faced State Government misplaces a million dollars. A grieving husband's emotional plea to his wife's killer. And the redevelopment of a suburb, transforming shopping in Sydney. Good evening, New York is slowly rising from the ashes and the flooding caused by the enormous and deadly power of Superstorm Sandy. A major fire has destroyed homes, and vast stretches of coastline are swamped. At least 48 are dead, and the damage bill is likely to top $50 billion. As Denham Hitchcock reports, the human energy of New York is

Fighting back. New York turned upside down. A flood of water below, while fire, the sudden unexpected enemy erupting amid the deluge. More than 80 homes destroyed in the suburb of Queens. This is called New York's new Ground Zero.Make no mistake about it. This was a devastating storm.The subway that never sleeps is all but silent. Now just the sound of pumps moving massive volumes of water that poured down stairwells and ventilation shafts. When estimating the damage bill, it's not just the destruction from Sandy that is the problem. It's the loss of business. This is the reason why. All the tunnels leading to Manhattan - this is the Brooklyn Tunnel, are underwater. They should be carrying about a million cars a day. Cars wallow left by a 4 metre tidal surge. This tanker was swept on to the shores of Staten Island. There are plenty of kauns caught up. Kay is pregnant -- Australians caught up in this. Kay is pregnant with twins.We are really stranded. Grand Central Station is a hollow form of itself. JFK and La Guardia are a shambles. Elsewhere the icons of New York, yellow taxies left wallowing in a lagoon. A famous fire hydrant a godsend, providing water for households.It's strange being in New York and getting water out of a fire hydrant.It's strange, messed up.The city's figurehead rock solid through the worst of it. Denham, what progress has been made today?Well, this is day one of the clean-up. They have so much to go. It seems they haven't made a dent in the three problems they have - water in the tunnels, which is isolateding Manhattan. The subway is submerged and the power outages - this is lower Manhattan. We are completely in darkness. Police are dropping flaress on the road so people don't -- flares on the road so people don't have accidents. This is just New York. The effects of Sandy are being felt across 18 states.Most of the water gone, but Sandy left her mark. Hundreds of kilometres of shore line has been washed away. Nersry was brutalised first and -- New Jersey was brutalised first and suffered the most. Thousands have been stranded in their homes by floodwaters.They tell you to go. Where?The fire department is going door to door. Boats of all sizes is the only way to get them to safety.Power is down, water almost gone. We have a baby and elderly person.I never thought I would see what I saw today.It's a sight of devastation that makes it look like there's been a bombing there. This was Atlantic City before Sandy. In the casino city, the La of the east, the iconic -- the Las Vegas of the east. The iconic boardwalk smashed to pieces. The amusement park has been washed away. 8 million is without power. As Sandy sweeps inland, not for them rain, but huge clumps of snow. President Barack Obama is looking more presidential, Sandy has taken the heat out of Mitt Romney's push for the White House.I told the Mayors and the governors, if they are getting no for an answer, they can call me at the White House.The damage from the superstorm is estimated at upwards of $50 billion. To the rest of the day's news now. A chilling police interview with the Madeleine Pulver collar bomber has been released. For the first time we hear how Paul Peters responded under pressure. Paul Peters looking calm and relaxed as detectives grill hip about his now notorious - - him about his not jourious crime. Is there anything you -- notorious crime. Anything you want to tell me about the extortion, kidnapping and bomb placed around the neck of Madeleine Pulver on 3 August? No. They tracked him down in the United States where he'd fled after his botched extortion attempt. The fake bomb put around the neck of teenager Madeleine Pulver.Are you responsible? No.Madeleine Pulver still has not seen Paul Peters since the terrifying day last year. Her parents, though, paid close attention to court proceedings. Today they heard from forensic psychiatrist Dr Jonathon Phillips, who said Peters suffers bipolar, add thag he was intermittently psychotic, when questioned by Judge Peter Zahra, Dr Jonathon Phillips said Peters was not psychotic when he planned the crime. Outside the court Maddie's dad didn't believe he was psychotic.I suspect there were mental health issues in play. However, it was well planned.For the first time he revealed what happened the day his daughter rang and told him about the colour bomb. She didn't know about the extortion letter. I ask myself the question. Would I have rung the police if I'd have known. Syme job, how is Maddie -- Simon, how is Maddie handling this a year on?We've been told that she's handling it badly. The sentencing has been tough. She doesn't want to front Paul Peters. The case has been adjourned until next Wednesday. We expect him to be sentenced soon after that, after more submissions.There are red- faces in the O'Farrell Government with an audit revealing big mistakes in the budget sums, adding to a staggering $1 billion. The good news means that NSW is out of the red and in surplus. Just weeks after the State Government told us massive spending cuts to health and education were needed to fill a budget black hole, we now find out it was based on a series of blunders.The budget result bounced around a bit like a pin ball machine.The government got it wrong in the middle of June, guessing a $337 deficit, when it should have been a $680 million surplus.I don't think anyone can argue anything other than in deficit.You said you were in surplus.He's independent. You are political.The Auditor-General found 37 multimillion-dollar errors in the last 12 months to June, higher than under Labor. Two mistakes alone were worth more than a billion each.Some were data entry errors. It's not a school tuckshop. The financial accounts need to be tightened up.Labor is smiling for a change.This is a Government inflicting cuts hurting every family in NSW. They are cuts that can't be justified.Kevin, it appears that the government is still going ahead with the cuts. Yes. They have a credibility problem. They are justifying cuts to schools and hospitals on figure that were wrong. It's hard to be suspicious of the next set of numbers, at least until the Auditor-General double-checks them. Today went from bad to worse for former Health Services Union boss Michael Williamson, leaving home for Waverley court, facing 20 chargess of hindering a police investigation, and found me was in double trouble.Police laid an additional 28 charges against Mr Michael Williamson.Michael Williamson is accused of defrauding the union of more than $600,000. A Liberal MP has been ejected from Federal Parliament for calling the Prime Minister corrupt. The outburst coming as the Opposition tried to embarass Julia Gillard for her role in setting up a union slush found, as a lawyer 20 years ago. Earlier this week Tony Abbott claimed he's interested only in issues that matter to the Australian feel.I will leave the nasty personal politics to the Labor Party.Julia Gillard quoted is back at the Liberal leader when the Opposition launched an attack over the union slush fund she helped to set up in 1993, money used fraudu lently by her boyfriend, an AWU official.How can the government assert it's not asserting nasty personal politics. Queensland Liberal Andrew Laming stunned the house and Prime Minister with a shouted ak usation that she was corrupt. -- accusation that she was corrupt.The individual will withdraw.Mr Laming did that and was ejected from the chamber as punishment.It was a Leader of the Opposition strategy. I hope he's proud of it, given what it lead to in the house.Julia Bishop raised the slush fund issue. I refer to a cheque from $57,000 fromment AWU workplace association -- from the AWU workplace association.I dealt with the matters on the public record.If Tony Abbott's plan is to leave the nasty politics to others to soften his image, the Prime Minister is determined he will not get away with it. Taronga Zoo keeper Lucy Melo has left hospital 12 days after she was crushed by elephant Pathi Harn. Doctors say she's made an excellent recovery and will start a period of rehabilitation. Forget the stories that Sydney retail is dying. A development worth $390 million will change the face of shopping for people in the west and north of Sydney. Finance Editor Ross Greenwood has this exclusive. This is your first look at the all-new Macquarie Shopping Centre - more cinemas, restaurants. The famous ice-skating rink remains, and surprises come.We are chasing a number of international brands to be juffed into the centre.Think -- introduced into the centre. Think Zara, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Top Shop. Hard to imagine within two years this site will be the home of a brand new David Jones store, a Coles and an aldi store. There'll be 130 -- aldie store. There'll be 130 specialist shops. It will be Sydney's second-largest shopping centre. Exit ramps off the M2 give better access from the west and north. Competition for the surrounding centres in Ryde, Chatswood and Parramatta.All the piess will be competitive.It's hard -- all the prices competitive. It's hard to get here.Students are part of plan, with the Macquarie Uni set to double.Residential, hotels, accommodation. They are becoming the heart of the community. 2,000 new apartments are being gilt now. The Macquarie Office Park will see 150,000 workers in the next decade.85% of Australians shop in shopping interests.They are no longer shopping centres. They are meccas for the community.

Please help us give her that.Have you ever seen a 10-ton bulldozer full fall from the sky. That happened over Londonderry, and it was spectacular.Airborne muscle over Londonderry skies, a 30-year- old Airforce Hercules, a veteran of Iraq, Afghanistan and the Bali bombing evacuation making a heavyweight delivery.Boxed up, supported by five giant parachutes. The cargo is a 10-ton bulldozer. They have to make sure it hands within metres of the target. And, of course, in one piece. In this case, a job well done.It's been a very successful drop.No damage?No, the doser is fine.The exercise proved the army and air force can drop a bulldozer anywhere in the world, and that could be important - maybe to repair a cyclone-damaged runway in Northern Queensland or an airstrip ripped up in Northern Indonesia. Getting out of the Airforce Hercules is one thing, but the success of the mission - does it start. Operation lander dozer - mission accomplished.

First to breaking news and the ARU comes down hard on Wallabies' superstar, Quade Cooper, after a marathon hearing at headquarters. What was the punishment?The Wallaby environment was toxic. He's been fined $60,000, $20,000 suspended. He's been given a 3- match suspended ban. He spoke to the media a short time ago.I understand what it means to be a Wallaby, and for the supporters who are out there, my apologies.And yesterday we bought you news about Sonny Bill Williams requiring an operation on his injured chest. He had that. He hopes to be boxing in February, and hopes to be playing at the start of the rugby league season. Australian batsman Michael Hussey says he's ready for the fight of his life in the upcoming test series against South Africa, a battle that may determine his test career. Michael Hussey has a poor record against the Proteas attack. Hussey has a chance to tune-up his batting before next week's text. He's captaining WA in a Sheffield Shield at the MCG. He sees it as a vital hit out.There's no point in worrying or stressing about anything that happened in the past. There's enough things to worry and stress about when you are in the middle.The South Africans are reluctant to single Australian batsmen out. They are aware that Michael Hussey struggled with their current attack. Michael Hussey averages less than 10.Hopefully we can get him out early and make sure we play good cricket.All the Aussies feel they have a point to prove. Fast bowler Peter Siddle hoped to lunch Movember. For the past six months, he's been off the booze and meet. It's about trying to be the best he can.It's maintaining fitness and that type of thick and staying ahead of everyone else.Fitter, stronger and lighter, Peter Siddle is ready to serve it up to South Africa.

Ian Thorpe released his -- at Werribee. Ip Thorpe released his book 'This Is Me'.
