Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest storms in U.S. history, made its way north to Ontario Monday and into Tuesday, although it was a much tamer experience than what was experienced south of the border.
Listen to Donald Trump Jr talk about the experience in NY on the Roz & Mocha Show after the jump.
The storm made landfall in New Jersey near Atlantic City Monday night just after 8 p.m. and began a menacing march up the coast. Thousands of people from Maryland to Connecticut were ordered to leave low-lying coastal areas, including 375,000 in lower Manhattan and other parts of New York City, 50,000 in Delaware and 30,000 in Atlantic City, NJ — where the city’s 12 casinos shut down for only the fourth time ever. With stinging rain and gusts of more 135 kph, the sea surged a record of nearly four metres at the foot of Manhattan, flooding the financial district and subway tunnels. Storm damage was projected at $10 billion to $20 billion, meaning it could prove to be one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history.
