A 32-feet-long, 16-feet-wide tube that can inflate to up to 35,000 gallons of volume may be our best hope next time there is a super storm.
The community of Ortley Beach off the Jersey Shore was hit hard when Sandy made landfall. It’s trying to rebuild, but it's finding it difficult when homeowners can't help.
A year ago this week, Hurricane Sandy plowed into the eastern seaboard, leaving dozens dead and causing more than $50 billion in damage. The repairs are ongoing in so many spots with applications on file from 25,000 New Yorkers in need of assistance, mostly to fix homes. But some communities are not rebuilding.
FEMA is updating its flood maps to expand areas deemed at risk of damage -- and that’s striking fear in communities that could be deluged with higher insurance bills.
