(Reuters) - New York state and New Jersey need at least $71.3 billion to recover from the devastation wrought by Superstorm Sandy and prevent similar damage from future storms, according to their latest estimates.
The total, which could grow, came as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Monday the state will need $41.9 billion, including $32.8 billion to repair and restore damaged housing, parks and infrastructure and to cover lost revenue and other expenses. The figure also includes $9.1 billion to mitigate potential damage from future severe weather events, Cuomo said.

This is not including damage in Connecticut!

I have some many friends and some family that do not even have a home!

Our F.D. has been down there handing out food and other needs....Fema is doing something, but not enoght , it is Katrina all over again.
Thanks said you would do better than Bush in the time of emergencies...NOT!
