Sandy, One Year Later: Looking to the Future

Tuesday, October 29, 8:30am-4:30pm | Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ .

Superstorm Sandy flooded cities and changed coastlines, causing $75 billion in damage and making it the second-costliest extreme weather event in U.S. history.

But the consequences would have been far worse without modern science.

One year after Superstorm Sandy made landfall, UCS co-sponsored a full-day forum to discuss how the application of scientific information can make communities more resilient and help the region plan for the future. 

Presented by the Union of Concerned Scientists, Monmouth University, New Jersey Future, and the New Jersey Recovery Fund
