Nearly 70 national parks sustained damage when Hurricane Sandy roared up the East Coast before making landfall on
in southern New Jersey. Among those hardest hit were 15 parks located in the metropolitan
area, where a response team comprised of more than 320 National Park Service employees from 101 national parks across the country are assisting in recovery efforts including providing assistance to National Park Service employees and their families impacted by the storm, damage assessments, emergency stabilization where needed, and beginning the clean-up of affected areas.
