Hurricane SandyHurricane Sandy's historical destruction to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States began with its landfall on October 29, 2012, and continued for nearly a week's time, across a dozen states, which resulted in billions of dollars of cumulative damage. The widespread effects led to federal declarations of disaster in the states of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and New Hampshire. Several geographical implications, both physical and cultural, were perhaps the main culprits in causing the destruction to each of these states. Learn about the geographic factors leading to damage from Sandy in this new article from Jordan Fisher, The Geography of Hurricane Sandy.
