Rebuilding After Sandy


Big Storm, Even Bigger Cleanup Job

Hurricane Sandy’s lethal two-day attack on the East Coast pummeled New York, New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania. The storm tragically led to the loss of lives[1], and the total damages have been estimated at $50 billion, the nation’s second-costliest hurricane in US History.[2] Cities woke up to the aftermath that included flooded homes, damaged cars, and downed power lines and attention quickly turned to the huge amount of repair and reconstruction that, even months after the event, continues to be carried out. Past experiences, such as with Hurricanes Katrina and Irene, have shown that the rebuilding of affected areas can often generate demand for companies that provide services such as home repairs, construction, insurance claim processing and environmental cleanup.
