New York and New Jersey after Sandy Facts
Two weeks have passed since the hurricane Sandy ran into the U.S. East Coast and left 8.5 million people without electricity. But work on the clearing of settlements, roads and beaches of loose debris, far from complete. This is especially noticeable in New York and New Jersey, in Coney Island and around Staten Island. A major force in this case are the team of volunteers who work on the clean-up of flooded homes and property saving surviving victims. Their work continues, even in the absence of electricity.
