October 30, 2017Hurricane Sandy Looking Forward
On the evening of October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall near Atlantic City, New Jersey. Its size, strength, and timing with high tide created an unprecedented natural disaster for our city and region. By the time the storm surge receded, 43 New Yorkers had lost their lives, 2 million people were without power, and $19 billion in damage had been done.
As we approach the fifth anniversary this weekend, we know many of you will be thinking of this milestone and the state of resilience planning in New York. MAS has compiled below a list of events related to the Sandy anniversary—commemorations, conversations, and opportunities to come together with friends and neighbors.
And if you were not able to join us for the MAS Summit for New York City earlier this month, we invite you to watch our sessions on resilience.
