SITUATION REPORT

01 NOVEMBER 2012

HURRICANE SANDY

BACKGROUND

Hurricane Sandy made landfall at 8 p.m. Monday night. Although it was considerably weakened, winds that stretched across almost 500 miles caused widespread damage. The storm’s fierce winds and rain brought flooding and power outage throughout more than a half-dozen states. The death toll from the storm is currently at more than 80 in the U.S. and could continue to rise as rescuers search house-to-house. Around 4.5 million people are still without power. Many roads and subways are closed, and more than 18,000 flights have been canceled. Lack of transportation combined with a lack of fuel in the area has made traveling into and around the area is a difficult task.

In one of the hardest hit areas, Bergen County experienced a levee break during the storm and was flooded with four feet of water in 30 minutes. Although most of the water has receded, more than 300 homes (not including those in trailer parks) have been affected. Officials have estimated that 20,000 are stranded in their homes.
