VIDEO: LTG Semonite Discusses Hurricane Sandy Recovery

Following Sandy, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ New York District has made great progress in its mission of coastal restoration, completing numerous beach restoration projects along the coast.

Since the storm, Army Corps has supported repair and recovery efforts throughout the northeast.

Those efforts have taken place in phases as USACE first supported immediate life and safety missions on behalf of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the days, weeks and months following the storm.

Then, work shifted to repairing and restoring existing projects. Today, the focus is on constructing projects that were not yet built when the storm struck, as well as longer-term efforts to reduce risk for coastal communities.

Over the last couple of years, USACE together with its contractors placed over 16 million cubic yards of sand on beaches in New York City, Long Island and northern New Jersey.

Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, Commanding General and Chief of Engineers, recently visited the New York District to inspect the progress of the ongoing construction in some of the Hurricane Sandy-Hit areas.

USACE has just released this video on the visit and the recovery efforts made following Hurricane Sandy.
