One year ago, the second-costliest hurricane in U.S. history moved ashore near New Jersey. Superstorm or Hurricane or both, it was a monster to contend with. Utilities prepared and responded, and the industry has since stepped up efforts to harden the system.
Hurricane Sandy affected 24 states. Its storm surge hit New York City on Oct. 29, 2012, flooding streets, tunnels and subway lines and cutting power in and around the city. Damage in the United States amounted to US$65 billion.
Utility crews came from all over the United States and Canada to assist local crews in the restoration. And last March, T&D World shared the stories of the individuals and teams who pulled together to bring power back to the Northeast in a special supplement. This gallery includes a few of the images we collected.
