Sandy report details NY’s storm needs

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The full report by an expert panel examining Superstorm Sandy’s effects in New York calls for quick, simple prevention measures for future storms including flood gates for tunnels, subways and airports as well as safe havens like old Civil Defense shelters. But it also calls for two more tunnels out of Manhattan, a rapid bus system and another Long Island Rail Road track.

The 205-page report obtained by The Associated Press details how to better pay for it all and improved insurance coverage for the state and residents.

Elements of the report were presented Thursday, but the report wasn’t released publicly. The full report was delivered to Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He is expected to include some recommendations in his State of the State speech Wednesday.

The report includes recommendations in use elsewhere, many at little or no cost.

What the report needs to say is every person living on the coast should have major flood insurance and if they can't afford it then they can't afford to live on the coast. Do NOT expect the government and taxpayers to keep pulling your A$$ out of trouble after every storm, get with it or get gone, it is that simple.
