Breaches on Long Island Oct. 31
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) North Atlantic Division teammates capture images of one of several small breaches on Long Island Oct. 31 that were caused by the massive waves and storm surge that Hurricane Sandy brought to the mid-Atlantic states Oct. 29-30. Because of a Breach Contingency Plan put in place by USACE and the State of New York after a devastating December 1992 Nor’easter and a significant March 1993 storm, these breaches will see expedited repairs. USACE officials hope the plan serves as a template for future partnerships and allows for additional breaches to be repaired at an accelerated pace.
