This is so horrible…
On October 28th Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the East Coast. The damage was extensive, the monetary damage could reach upward of $20 billion making Sandy the second costliest storm after Hurricane Katrina.
Sandy hit New York at the perfect moment, high tide and a full moon. The storm surge was unprecedented, water flooded the tunnels and made its way into Battery Park. The worst of the surge happened in the low lying areas, namely downtown Manhattan, Staten Island, and the Rockaways where Breezy Point is located.
A fire started in one of the homes in Breezy Point and quickly nearly 200 homes were burned to the ground. The rest of the Rockaways washed into the Atlantic Ocean, as homes and property were lost to the storm.
