As Superstorm Sandy slammed the East Coast in late October, coastal airports took the much of the brunt of the hurricane’s wrath. Several Northeast airports, including Teterboro and Newark in New Jersey, New Haven, Bridgeport and Groton/New London in Connecticut and New York LaGuardia, suffered serious flooding and damage. The storm, which will go down as the second costliest in U.S. history behind only Hurricane Katrina in 2005, caused an estimated $65 billion in damage. The storm wiped out entire towns along the coast, and caused power outages that lingered in many areas for weeks and displaced thousands. At least 253 people were killed by the storm in seven countries.
