I've been hearing from some of our NJ and LI students and many of them were lucky to have their families relatively unharmed. The property damage seems to be what is most overwhelming...to see some of the most important places of your childhood washed away is psychologically rough (one student from Breezy Point was tweeting some of what he was hearing from his family and I had to stop reading). BonaResponds, our campus outreach organization, has already planned trips down that way.I haven't heard anything yet. We are not close to being an area affected by the "surge" so the only damage I can foresee is electrical outage, down trees. The rainfall was less than an inch so we would not have flooding. As you likely have seen on TV, other parts of the City have been ruined, with the damage in NJ even worse. Seaside Heights , Moonachie underwater. Truly devastating. In a coastal area of Queens, Breezy Points, 50 homes burned to the ground.
