Looking Back: Important Coverage of Sandy and its Aftermath
One year after Hurricane Sandy, we’ve collected the best reporting on the storm.
It's been one year since Hurricane Sandy battered the Eastern Seaboard. We reported then how hospitals struggled to care for patients with failing generators, and how deregulation of telecom companies left many Sandy survivors not knowing where to find a signal.
But 12 months later, the struggle is not yet over for the communities hit hardest by the hurricane. Federal aid has been mired in bureaucratic hangups, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency continues to fund risky construction in flood-prone areas. At least 200 New Yorkers are still homeless due to the storm. Here's a look back at our reporting on the storm and its aftermath, as well as great coverage elsewhere.
