Sandy in Comparison

Posted by: | October 30, 2012 | No Comment |

Hurricane Sandy seems to have done nothing to the Northern Virginia area.

NOVA woke up on Tuesday to a low number of power outages, barely any flooding, and minimal structure damage. Compared to New York City we really got nothing. It was merely a day-long storm. For NOVA, ‘Frankenstorm’ was all hype. For New York, however, it fulfilled the drama of its daunting nickname.

According to Dominion Electric, the Northern Virginia region only suffered from about 43,000 power outages. In contrast to New York City’s 750,000 residents left without power, NOVA made out well.
