Hurricane Sandy presented some of the greatest public health and emergency preparedness challenges from extreme weather in recent history, leaving dozens dead, and millions without power across a wide swath of the Northeast. This superstorm tested the capabilities of the public health system, and public health officials responded in heroic fashion. Public Health is there to help keep our communities safe and healthy before, through, and after storms like Hurricane Sandy.
