Looking back at Sandy one year later

Monday, October 28th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — One year ago, Hurricane Sandy was churning off our coast. The storm brought us wind and rain before it set off on a deadly trail into the northeast.

An unusually late season storm became Sandy in the Caribbean, and slammed into Jamaica and Cuba before heading north.

Sandy would brush our coast with rain and surf and cause significant damage to parts of the Outer Banks, but it did what storms like these rarely do, as it took dead aim at New York and New Jersey.

A record high storm surge turned New York City streets into canals, destroyed piers and washed away entire neighborhoods on the Jersey Shore. Sadly, the storm claimed 130 lives in the US. Many were people who lived in mandatory evacuation zones.

For the northeast, this storm will be talked about for generations, as it permanently changed the lives of so many.
