In Brief

How innovative new technologies could help make recovery efforts more efficient after disaster strikes.

As hurricane Sandy bore down on a metropolis unaccustomed to such storms, transport was shut down, citizens were evacuated, and first responders were put on alert, but the storm still caused widespread destruction. Authorities are still scrambling to restore order and services, yet some are still without power or shelter, a problem only exacerbated by the recent nor’easter.
