Sandy Strengthens as Hurricane Barrels Toward New Jersey

Damages could reach the billions reported Bloomberg news this morning (Oct 29, 2012 9:56 AM ET) as Sandy grows stronger and heads towards New Jersey.

“The storm, 900 miles across, shut the federal government and state administrations from Virginia to Massachusetts. It halted travel, prevented U.S. stock markets from opening and upended the presidential campaign. It may cause more than $6 billion in damage and knock out power to 10 million for a week or more.”

10:05 a.m.: Flooding reported; shelter setup; wind warning of 80 mph gusts – Hudson River and Coastal Towns Expected to be Hit Hardest

Many New Yorkers are already fighting the rising water levels.

“The worst of Hurricane Sandy storm is expected to hit the northern suburbs between 2 p.m. and 11 p.m. today, but its effects are already being felt.” Just this morning, a business owner in Mamaroneck rushed to secure property and office equipment.  The coastal and river towns are stockpiling sandbags in preparation for high water levels and much flooding throughout the region.

Continued from the article linked above, “In Rockland County, residents were battening down the hatches as they braced for the impact of the storm. Municipal workers in Ramapo filled hundreds of sandbags Sunday morning at the town’s highway facility on Pioneer Avenue. Long lines quickly formed as residents stockpiled more than 2,000 sandbags before noon.”

Many Homeowners Expected to File Insurance Claims

Although maybe not something anyone wants to think about right now… Who will be paying for the damages? Your insurance policy may not cover as much as you think.  Common advice is to prepare as best you can to avoid damages. Repair and remediation can take weeks.  Get as much as you can to higher ground and stay safely indoors.

According to USA Today, “States that have hurricane deductibles: Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Washington, D.C.”
