Hurricane Sandy’s track is unpredictable like all hurricanes that hit the east coast. What is predictable however, is the effects of the hurricane. The storm surge can cause flooding, the winds from hurricanes can cause damage to the roof of buildings and can hurl material and debris long distances and that material can act as a missile. Cascading events like power outages, blocked roads and flooded properties can bring misery. Did you know that more people commit suicide as a result of flooding than any other disaster?
Educate yourself on the effects of hurricanes and how you can avoid be devastated by its effects. Go to websites like Ready.gov and the National Weather service for more information.
