Rate your Marina during Sandy ?

How well did your Marina or Club communicated during Sandy ?
Did they keep you informed of the local situation during and after Sandy? Or did you have to figure this out by yourself?
My boat is at Cottage Park YC in Winthrop Mass and the Club did not communicate at all!
During the hurricane we got emails concerning fund raising and obituaries but absolutely nothing regarding the surge and how boats were holding. For those leaving an hour away and watching the news on Tv, that was a bit of a nerve wreaking situation.
During the storm some boats dragged their moorings and landed downriver, another broke its mooring and ended up hitting the docks .
Beside taking pictures for the newsletter , the Club pretty much followed usual routine and none of the owners got any information at all . Not during and not after!
I know that lots of you have suffered lots of damages and are still in a difficult situation but how did you find out about your boat’s situation? Word of mouth/ fellow sailors/forums / harbormasters?
What are normal standards and how would you rate your Marina or Club when it comes to this kind of situation ?
