A judge has demanded an inquiry into insurance companies’engineers editing/fudging reports on Sandy damaged homes, so that they could get out of…drumroll…paying claims! And so superstorm Sandy slowly continues its miserable path of ruination.
It’s been nearly two years since the region got walloped by superstorm Sandy. Yet, incredibly, even now, Sandy still packs a nasty punch every day for many of those who have homes near the shore. Because of a series of grinding, glacial bureaucracies, they still cannot afford the simple act of just going home.
According to very unbiased, scientific studies, the crumbling of the Amtrak-operated tunnels under the East River (due to Sandy related flooding), and ensuing years of closures/repairs will affect the LIRR more than any other rail service on the entire planet. Sigh.
