On a cold rainy day last fall, dozens of people gathered in a plaza across the street from New Jersey's state Capitol. They held press conferences and slept overnight in lawn chairs. Everyone had come to make the same point: They'd made it through Superstorm Sandy, which hit the shores of New Jersey and New York in October 2012. But three years later, many hadn't made it home. Superstorm Sandy wasn't a disaster for everyone, though. For some, it was big money.

NPR and the PBS series Frontline have spent the past year investigating the business of disaster and have uncovered a complex system in which private companies profit and homeowners and clients suffer. At the center of that system is the National Flood Insurance Program, which is designed to help in disasters like Sandy. Almost everyone with a mortgage who lives near water pays for flood insurance through the program, so more than three years later most residents expected to be home. But in many cases that didn't happen. While thousands of homeowners like Doug Quinn, a 51-year-old from Toms River, N.J. said they have not received the recovery help they need, the investigation found that their private insurance companies that administer the government's flood program made as much as an estimated $240 million to $406 million in profit annually over the past four years. Above, Quinn stands on the empty lot where his house used to be. Three years after the storm, he’s still paying the mortgage on this nonexistent home while he rents the house he lives in now.

Cleaning out some drawers and found this. #superstormsandy
Five years ago today, we were cleaning up from the worst beating the @lbiregion has ever taken. 
We started shooting Just Beneath The Surface shortly after. Time and time again, when we are doing interviews, we hear people talk about the storm, the aftermath, and how we've come back as a stronger community. 
This is why we make these films. This is why we love this area.

I went down to Long Beach Island a little more than 2 months after Hurricane Sandy blasted it.  It was late December and the island was eerily empty. It is usually empty in the winter, but the storm really kept the people away.  It was interesting walking around in the freezing wind, surveying the damage and seeing things that ordinarily aren't there. Things like barbed wire stuck in the sand, different types of seashells that were seemingly churned up by rough water, and debris everywhere were proof that thus storm took no prisoners.  I read reports of WW2 munitions washing up just a few blocks away.  I came across this track in the sand.  I assume it was some sort of bulldozer that was sadly pushing the wreckage of a family's summer dreams to it's final resting place.  I took a ton of photos that day because things were so different.  The beach was hardly recognizable.  This track, to me, made the beach look extraterrestrial like some moon crater or a valley the Mars Rover was exploring.  The beach was back to normal a few months later, but this photo is a reminder of the deep scars Sandy left.  #newjersey #jersey #jerseystrong #beach #lbi #sand #travel #travelgram #travelstagram #natgeo #storm #superstormsandy #wanderlust #picoftheday #photooftheday

Its that time again. I still remember the announcement in 2012 , as we were recovering from #SuperStormSandy that #StarWars was returning. Three years later, we got #TheForceAwakens , which was a great movie that coincided with my graduation from #StocktonUniversity . Now, here I am. New job, new paths, the best friends I can ever have, and a new Star Wars film. Let's do it!

Mornings like this I think of my Mom. Woke up to a non-working boiler. Now I know why I FROZE last night. If you're buying a home make sure FIREPLACE is on your wish list. It was on my Moms, therefore it was on mine. Comes in handy in emergencies! Good morning! #Firewood #FirePlace #GrowedUpLongIsland #NYCSuburbs #RIPmom

I'll admit - we don't talk much about winter storms down in #SouthTexas. But, as I've learned from my husband who grew up in #Pennsylvania, #snow is actually a real thing. His family was impacted by #SuperStormSandy, and afterwards, his dad bought a generator to make sure they never had to deal with a power outage like that again. Considering a portable generator for your home too? Keep these tips in mind:⠀
- When running your portable generator, keep it outside in a well ventilated area! Keep it away from doors, windows, and vents. Not only is it loud and smells bad, the fumes are dangerous.⠀
- Make sure you have carbon monoxide alarms in your house and that they are in working condition. If the fumes do get inside your house, you'll want to know!⠀
- Don't use your generator in a wet area. You could get shocked or electrocuted (...yikes!!!).⠀
- Make sure any extension cords you use with your portable generator are heavy duty & built for the task.⠀
- Only add fuel to a cool generator. If it is hot, you run the risk of starting a fire.⠀

9th graders at #LeadersHighSchool did fieldwork without leaving the building this week! Students took a tour of the vault, boiler room and some other places that were affected by Superstorm Sandy as part of their case study on climate change. 
Fun facts
-Fish and seashells were found in the cafeteria after the storm
-Water was shooting up the ceiling from the drains in the floor.
-Cost $17 million to fix all the damage.

#TisTheGiving season at #Americares: Yesterday we announced that our mobile clinic will donated to Puerto Rico! The #mobileclinic was previously deployed for #HurricaneKatrina in 2005, #SuperstormSandy in 2012, and #inTexas after #HurricaneIke in 2008. The #mobileunit was Fred Weisman’s passion project. Fred and his wife, Joan (left), have been long-time partners with Americares—Joan joined our other volunteers in #tohelp pack #FirstAidkits for our #emergencyresponse. The mobile clinic, donated by the Weissmans, has also #served #throughout in #BridgeportCT, #GrotonCT, #NewLondonCT, #MilfordCT, and #StamfordCT. Now the mobile clinic is ready again to set off to Puerto Rico, where #HurricaneMaria put health at risk, claimed over 55 lives, and caused an estimated $94 billion in damages. As Joan said, “...I call it the little bus that could.”
•
And so #HealthIsOnTheWay with the ‘little bus that could’ 😊 😊 to serve #ourneighbors, just a little #southof #theNortheast, in Puerto Rico. Because #thatswhatwedo at Americares—with YOU, our generous supporters—we're bringing health and hope to those who need it most. Learn exactly where the clinic is headed with our link in bio!

Jesse Trubia, president of a metal fabrication company, decided to pass on flood insurance when he moved to his two-story home on the outskirts of Houston several years ago. That decision will now cost him up to $30,000, he estimated. Up to one foot of water seeped into his home in Cypress, he judges from a neighbor’s report, ruining furniture, plasterboard, paint, carpets and wooden flooring. He said a real estate agent and title insurance company had given him the impression he did not need flood insurance because his home wasn’t in a floodplain.

Every building is in a flood zone. Let me repeat that…EVERY BUILDING IS IN A FLOOD ZONE. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. The difference between the flood zones is how often they are expected to get flooded (once every 100 years, every 500 years, every 1000 years, etc.). There are countless stories of homes and commercial buildings getting flooded when they were in a ‘standard’ flood zone (otherwise known as an X zone).

The difference between the flood zones is how often they are expected to get flooded (once every 100 years, every 500 years, every 1000 years, etc.). There are countless stories of homes and commercial buildings getting flooded when they were in a ‘standard’ flood zone (otherwise known as an X zone). . .

#TBT My re-entry badge after #SuperstormSandy
Here's a throw back to about 4 years ago when I took my Sandy damaged home down piece by piece. Time was on my side, so I'd work a few hours at the end of each day until it was all loaded into the dumpsters. #determination #superstormsandy #hptinspections #homeinspection #homeinspector #njhomeinspection #njhomeinspector #njrealestate #njrealtor
Still can't get over the building in the parking lot..... #jimsdock #superstormsandy
This is Alice - one of my favorite kids to photograph. The photo was taken shortly after Superstorm Sandy. This is at her home in upstate New York. The tree she's jumping over is one of many that was destroyed as a result of the storm.
