It’s no question that Hurricane Sandy has had some devastating effects on all of our neighbors up and down the Eastern Seaboard.
Locally, in New Jersey, New York and the entire Tri-State Area, the impact has been particularly rough. The news has reported that Hurricane Sandy was the single biggest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded and the destruction Sandy has left in her wake will be the second most expensive hurricane on record – only surpassed by Katrina. The Wall Street Journal and Routers are reporting Sandy will easily pass estimates of $70 billion in both property damage and service interruption. With Sandy making landfall right here on our very own Jersey Shore, weeks after the storm we still have many without power and just the thought of filling up at the gas station leaves most of us with the feeling of dread. If any name was appropriate for Hurricane Sandy, ‘Frankenstorm’ fits perfectly.
