The First Sandy Images and Reactions on Twitter

Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast on Monday, October 29. By Tuesday, October 30, photos and reactions to Hurricane Sandy were filling Twitter feeds with unimaginable images and news of destroyed beach towns, flooded homes, felled trees, evacuations and power outages. NJTV curated that busy stream of storm preparations and Sandy’s aftermath to share an overview of what people in New Jersey posted from homes and work places. One of the most-cited Tweets that day was from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: “I don’t give a damn about Election Day after what has happened here. I am worried about the people of New Jersey. #Sandy.”

    Sometimes the promise of help is worse than not. There are so many organizations and agencies that we hear about it becomes overwhelming to actually know who to call and what help is available. Is there a help desk or case worker or advisor who can direct a home owner to the proper agency or organization for assistance with their particular issues?

    Those whose homes are “substantially damaged” and in the V zone must elevate those homes. “Increased Cost of Compliance” coverage from our flood insurance will pay only $30k but it is actually going to cost $60k to $80k. We can’t afford that! Who’s going to help and when?
