Oct. 29, 2013, marks the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy’s landfall on the North Atlantic coast of the United States. In a matter of hours, the storm caused the tragic loss of many lives, massive power outages throughout the eastern United States and destruction of infrastructure, businesses, and homes.

Responding to Hurricane Sandy was a national effort. As part of the unified federal response, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) deployed nearly 800 experts from around the Nation to support local Corps employees, many of whom were personally affected by the storm, and established forward command offices in the areas hardest hit by the storm.  In the days and weeks that followed, the Corps worked closely with its partners to unwater approximately 475 million gallons of salt water from flooded critical infrastructure, install more than 200 generators to critical facilities such as hospitals and police stations, remove roughly 900,000 cubic yards of debris in New York City alone, and provide more than nine million liters of bottled water and begin measures to repair damaged coastal projects.
