TINTON FALLS, NJ--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2012) - Whenever disaster strikes and major damage ensues, Business Facilities always springs into action to give its readers timely updates of the extent of the destruction and the slow, sometimes painful recovery efforts.
Last year, we chronicled the havoc wrought by monster tornadoes in Joplin and Tuscaloosa, followed by inspirational and heroic rebuilding. We also held our breath, with the rest of the world, and gave you hourly bulletins during the cataclysmic meltdown in Fukushima, Japan following the earthquake and tsunami.
It never occurred to us that when this year's major natural disaster arrived, we would be right in the middle of it. The BF team and its parent company, Group C Media, are still coping with the impact of Hurricane Sandy, more than a week after the superstorm surged into New Jersey and decimated large areas of the Jersey Shore, Staten Island, Queens and many places in between.
Our headquarters office in Tinton Falls is about 10 miles from the shore near Asbury Park. As this is being written, it remains dark and cold. Power has been restored sporadically in Monmouth and Ocean counties, among the hardest hit areas of NJ. As of this morning, hundreds of thousands were still without power in NJ and NY, as a winter storm heads up the coast to deliver another body blow to this wounded area.
