Superstorm Sandy, Six Months Later
May 15 2013
Just over six months ago, Superstorm Sandy hit the East Coast and devasted entire communities, including those that had never before been hit by such extreme weather. As winter turned into spring, however, Sandy seemed to drift away from the public's consciousness. As Memorial Day and summer approach, towns and cities all across the coast that were affected by the storm are scrambling to ready their houses and boardwalks, at least what is left of them, for the tourist season. We spent a few days traveling to the New Jersey shore, Far Rockaway, and Long Beach in Long Island, New York, to survey the damage and the work being done to repair it. Some areas were almost back to normal, and some had seemingly given up hope of reopening, at least for this year.
