East Coast Members Recover from Hurricane Sandy Aftermath

Hurricane Sandy devastated the East Coast on Oct. 29, 2012, killing 113 and resulting in millions of dollars in damage. The category two hurricane caused flooding, severe power outages and high winds. ESA members were among those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Here are a few words from NYBFAA members on their experience:

 "I've spoken to a bunch of folks that are still without power,"Jason Etter of Albany, N.Y.-based AVX Integrated Technologies said. "We got our back early this morning. The lines for gas are one of the biggest stories out of this. Everyone is scrambling to get generators, gas, etc."

"Not only were we affected personally [by Hurricane Sandy], but our companies and our clients were as well," said New York, N.Y.-based Amerigard Alarm & Security Corp. CEO Richard Cantor. "Many were wiped out completely or partially off the map. We are doing all we can - even reaching out to the authorities to see if we can help them. But for now, it is back to the clean up and caring for those who need it."

It is frightening how easy civil order can break down. Gas Stations have National Guard soldiers and State Troopers controlling the crowds. Some lines are 4 plus hours long, The authorities report that over 100,000 homes on the south shore of Nassau and Suffolk counties alone are uninhabitable. Now, the snow storm Wednesday has brought down more trees.
