Video - Superstorm Sandy Costs Tens of Billions More than Original Estimates

Less than one month before the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy many New Jersey residents, businesses and communities have learned that the costs of Sandy are much higher than the tens of billions originally estimated. Monday, US Strong will release a new report, Extreme Weather, Extreme Costs: The True Financial Impact of Superstorm Sandy on New Jersey Homeowners, Businesses and Municipalities, that helps clarify just how high that cost is. The report details the true financial costs of Sandy to homeowners, businesses and communities—and includes stories and interviews with impacted individuals.

Superstorm Sandy slammed into North America in late October 2012 and approximately one year later Superstorm Haiyan, perhaps the strongest storm ever to make landfall, struck Asia. People are asking questions about extreme weather and the relationship to climate change. Fueled by warmer seas caused by global warming these destructive weather anomalies are certain to increase as the world gets warmer.

We know for sure that extreme weather comes with extreme cost and according to Nasa scientists the situation will get worse as the planet warms.
