Hurricane Sandy, Day 2: Jersey Shore, Philly water, Delaware


    Hour 2

    Our coverage of Hurricane Sandy continues in this hour of Radio Times. We start with a live update from WHYY reporter TOM MacDONALD from the Jersey Shore, where he spent the morning touring the devastation, including Atlantic City. Then we’ll hear from Philadelphia Water Commissioner HOWARD NEUKRUG about what happens to all that water that falls on a concrete-covered city, and what he’s doing to route that water in greener ways. Then, we’ll speak with Delaware Secretary of the Environment and Energy COLLIN O’MARA about how Hurricane Sandy hit the Delaware beaches and bayshore and the preparations Delaware has taken to adjust to sea-level rise and coastal flooding.
