The official seal of The Bronx.

“Ten years ago, Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New York after causing unimaginable damage in the Caribbean islands and claiming many lives along the way. Hurricane Sandy caused catastrophic damage: homes were destroyed, our trains were flooded, communities lost power and most devastatingly, over 40 New Yorkers lost their lives. On this ten-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, we remember those we lost, stand with those that were deeply affected by this storm, and vow to work together to curb the effects of global warming. In New York, we are working to ensure the safety of all our residents by advocating for projects that enhance our coastal resiliency and strengthen our infrastructure to prevent future flooding of this magnitude.”
