    Army Corps continues Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts

    NEW YORK – It’s been five years since Hurricane Sandy made history as the largest Atlantic hurricane on record when it made landfall near Brigantine, N.J. on Oct. 29, 2012. With wind gusts in excess of 75 miles per hour and storm surge that inundated much of the New York and New Jersey coasts, the storm killed more than 100 Americans and caused more than $50 billion in damages. Since the storm, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has supported repair and recovery efforts throughout the northeast.
