Hurricane Sandy

Guests: Ed Kieser, Kelly Formoso, and Jim Angel.

Sandy continues to wreak havoc over the eastern seaboard and mid-Atlantic states. The death toll continues to rise as a result of the storm, millions are without power, and the cost of damage to homes and businesses from the storm, its high winds, and subsequent flooding, is projected to be in the billions. While we all continue to monitor the damage caused by Sandy, some of the experts will give us an opportunity to understand exactly what happened to cause this “super storm.”
