Re: Halloween Hurricane
Nothing new here with Sandy. All coastal towns ever hit by a huge hurricane, suffered huge damage. It's just somewhat new for NYC area and there was more population density.
Funny you mention ice melt. The arctic is just a huge ice cube and water expands when frozen. Why, when it melts, would the water level go up?
Nevertheless, I fully agree with updating building codes. Everyone in the country is paying the bills for people to live directly on the coast. Always have in modern America. If you want a house or building there, you should have to build it to be survivable. Understanding that it can never be perfect.
