Stronger Than the Storm? Superstorm Sandy’s Two-Year Anniversary: Lessons Learned, Defining Recovery, and What the Future Holds


Guests: Todd Bates and John A. Miller

Today marks the second anniversary of Superstorm Sandy making landfall on New Jersey’s coastline. Two years later, many residents are still left wondering if post-Sandy New Jersey is ready for another direct hit. In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll hear from TODD BATES, the environmental and severe weather reporter for the Asbury Park Press, and JOHN MILLER, water resources engineer at Princeton Hydro and Legislative Committee Chair of the New Jersey Association for Flood Plane Management about how the Jersey Shore and its residents are faring after the storm. They’ll also breakdown the planning that has gone on since the storm, the recovery process, and future responses to coastal disasters.
