The Storm

Hurricane Sandy Floods New York City
  • NYC was perfectly positioned to absorb the worst
    of Hurricane Sandy's storm surge -record 13
    feet.
  • Lower Manhattan received the brunt of the
    flooding.

  • A man uses his mobile phone to photograph a
    closed and flooded subway station in lower
    Manhattan, in New York, Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012.
    Due to superstorm Sandy, New York City awakened
    Tuesday to a flooded subway system, shuttered
    financial markets and hundreds of thousands of
    people without power a day after a wall of
    seawater and high winds slammed into the city,
    destroying buildings and flooding tunnels.

    Consolidated Edison power plant, Monday, Oct. 29,
    2012, in New York. Sandy continued on its path
    Monday, as the storm forced the shutdown of mass
    transit, schools and financial markets, sending
    coastal residents fleeing, and threatening a
    dangerous mix of high winds and soaking rain.

  • NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 29 Rising water, caused
    by Hurricane Sandy, rushes into a subterranian
    parking garage in the Financial District of NYC.

  • Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, the New York skyline
    remains dark. In an attempt to lessen damage from
    saltwater to the subway system and the electrical
    network beneath the city's financial district,
    New York City's main utility cut power to about
    6,500 customers in lower Manhattan. But a far
    wider swath of the city was hit with blackouts
    caused by flooding and transformer explosions.

Bellevue Storm Damage
11
Bellevue Storm Damage
  • 13 ft of water flooded the basement where the
    power grid and fuel pumps were located
  • All 36 elevator shafts flooded, shutting down the
    system
  • Land line and cell phones were down
  • No running water
  • Minimal lighting via emergency generators

12
Survival
  • Medical care continued
  • Emergency generators were on the 13th floor
  • Fuel needed to be brought to these generators, so
    the bucket brigade was born
  • With the assistance from the National Guard, the
    bucket brigade continued for 4 days to keep the
    generators functioning, which allowed a safe
    evacuation

Remediation
  • Damage assessment began after pumping out gt 6
    million gallons of water from the basement
  • Contractors evaluated the entire ventilation
    system, air and water quality along with
    cleaning, disinfection and mold remediation
  • Continuous environmental testing for air quality,
    mold spores, coliforms and Legionella were being
    conducted
  • Disposal of enormous amounts of pharmaceuticals,
    supplies and equipment

Lessons Learned
  • Power sources must be on higher floors
  • Elevators should be kept at higher floors
  • Flashlights are needed in every area
  • Walkie-talkies must be distributed to key
    personnel
  • Utilize a vendor-based inventory contract to keep
    supplies to a minimum, but maintain adequate
    inventory
  • Communication must be continuous
