During the peak of the storm, Newtown Creek flooded throughout Zones A, B and C, and some waterfront areas experienced several feet of water. Luckily, waters receded quickly for the most part, but cleanup for many will be challenging, and the industrial zone is dealing with damage to electrical systems and other equipment. Check out our photos from the storm, and our recap of Sandy’s visit and lasting impacts.
Join Congresswomen Velázquez and Maloney, Assemblyman Lentol, and Councilmembers Levin and Reyna…along with NCA and the Superfund CAG, for a review of what when right and what went wrong on Newtown Creek during Superstorm Sandy.
