New York State Action Plan for Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR)
Funding for Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee
In late October 2012, the largest storm in New York’s recorded history swept ashore. Hurricane Sandy’s effect was devastating, causing widespread damage to lives, homes, businesses, core infrastructure, government property and an economy just recovering from the financial crisis. Fourteencounties were declared as Federal disaster areas. Sixty New Yorkers died and two million customers lost power with some blackouts lasting up to three weeks. The storm damaged or destroyed as many as 300,000 housing units, affected or closed over 2,000 miles of roads, produced catastrophic flooding in subways and tunnels, and damaged major power transmission systems.
