Hurricane Sandy – Resources and Links

As Hurricane Sandy moves toward New Jersey and Delaware, we thought it might be useful to pull some resources for those folks living in the projected path of the storm, as we did last year for Hurricane Irene. We hope that everyone in the area has found safe shelter and has all the necessities to weather the storm.
