REPORT: 72,000 New Jersey Properties Damaged or Destroyed by Superstorm Sandy

Last week, the Christie Administration preliminarily pegged its total Sandy-related damage cost estimate at $29.4 billion.

Tonight’s released “total assessment” is higher… $36.9 billion.

The price tag is only one of several staggering numbers associated with this natural disaster. The Christie Administration estimated that “30,000 businesses and homes were destroyed or experienced structural damage, while 42,000 homes were impacted in some other way.”

72,000 properties… yikes. 

Another horrific number?

233,000 New Jersey have already applied to FEMA for individual assistance.

  1. Seems strange to me that we heard so much about Katrina for months, yet the networks don't give nearly as much coverage to people suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
