How has Sandy effected you or has it not? Is there something we all can learn from this?

I'm personally not affected by it, being based in the EU, but if there's a lesson to learn from this I'd say it's to always be prepared before the storm hits and to always follow the instructions provided by the authorities. I've read somewhere that more people die/get hurt AFTER the storms because they are not careful than during the duration of the storm. In most cases it's easily avoidable.

We are in the UK, so not effecting us directly, but one of our servers is hosted in a NY datacentre. We spent 3 days on the phone with the DC techs preparing for Sandy and having our server migrated to a safer DC so that we dont suffer downtime.

A number of NYC based datacenters went down during the storm as a consequence of power loss, taking down a large quantity of prominent websites.

I am wondering how long this downtime will take place for and what kind of financial damages these affected DCs will face as a result.

The thing to learn is how to better prepare for stuff like this, especially data centers where the backup generators also had issues.

Not in the US, but definitely caused problems indirectly, e.g. the stock market being down, a lot of US being out of business, etc...

The reason backup generators failed was due to fuel issues and nothing else. They were prepared but when they ran out of fuel they could not get new supplies of fuel.
