Hurricane Sandy Looking Forward

Reflect­ing & Plan­ning Ahead
On the evening of Octo­ber 29, 2012, Hur­ri­cane Sandy made land­fall near Atlantic City, New Jer­sey. Its size, strength, and tim­ing with high tide cre­at­ed an unprece­dent­ed nat­ur­al dis­as­ter for our city and region. By the time the storm surge reced­ed, 43 New York­ers had lost their lives, 2 mil­lion peo­ple were with­out pow­er, and $19 bil­lion in dam­age had been done.

As we approach the fifth anniver­sary this week­end, we know many of you will be think­ing of this mile­stone and the state of resilience plan­ning in New York. MAS has com­piled below a list of events relat­ed to the Sandy anniversary—commemorations, con­ver­sa­tions, and oppor­tu­ni­ties to come togeth­er with friends and neigh­bors.

And if you were not able to join us for the MAS Sum­mit for New York City ear­li­er this month, we invite you to watch our ses­sions on resilience.
