I was under the distinct impression that hurricane season was over. Unfortunately for those in the Northeast region of the United States, there is an important distinction that many failed to realize: tropical hurricanes are not the only ones that can hit our coasts. Hurricane Sandy is affecting Northeastern States and extends as far inland as Ohio and West Virginia. Any coastal cities have taken the biggest hit, as parts of Manhattan, Long Island and several locations in New Jersey are experiencing flooding and destruction to a scale that this country hasn’t seen since Hurricane Katrina.
