Transcript of hurricane
10,000 people are getting together to help rebuild houses. Numerous people are trying to help people who were hit hard by Sandy. Many people give love to the red cross for all their help.
Hurricane Sandy will always be remembered for its devastating affects through several states across the northeastern United States. Although, before Sandy became a historic and tragic reminder of the power of Mother Nature, it wreaked havoc along the southeast Florida coast as it paralleled the coastline on its trek to the north. Although Sandy did not make landfall across south Florida, it did have a significant impact, most notably with regard to the large swells produced by Sandy.
In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy pounded the east coast, severely impacting densely populated areas of New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut with strong winds, heavy rains, and record storm surges; millions of people lost power, roads flooded so transport options were restricted, and thousands sought temporary shelter as homes and businesses were destroyed. Nearly 160 people lost their lives in Hurricane Sandy and many communities are still rebuilding.
When Hurricane Sandy struck New York City on October 29, 2012, it caused flooding in all five boroughs. The storm surge reached nearly 88,700 buildings, more than 300,000 housing units, and 23,400 businesses.
If your property has been damaged in any way as a result of the storm, companies like All Jersey can provide assistance. They offer specialty services geared towards repairing homes and businesses impacted by the hurricane.

Get together to build homes.
People should always have insurance for their homes.
We should get in touch with companies like "All Jersey" that help people rebuild.
The federal government offers flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program. This insurance is mandated for structures located in high-risk areas. However, many residential buildings and houses in high-risk areas do not have that type of insurance policy. Those people will have no way to pay for the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.
The Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, led by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, issued a report that provides recommendations for mitigating harm from future storms.
Recommendations include assisting homeowners to stay in their homes after disasters by allowing quick emergency repairs, and making housing units more sustainable and resilient by encouraging smart recovery steps including elevating above flood risk and increased energy efficiency.
Many people were hurt or lost their homes because of Hurricane Sandy. We all need to do our part to help. What if it happened to you or me?
But what can we do to help?
I went to Ocean City for Student Exchange. We planted sand dunes and picked up garbage on the beach. That's what I did.
I also learned about other ways people can help. Here are some other solutions:
