Six months after Superstorm Sandy, an unwelcome development is set to make the months to come miserable for allergy sufferers.
Hurricane relief wasn’t the original goal for a foundation founded in the wake of 9/11. But just as things changed on 9/11, life shifted gears once again last October for Frank Siller, chairman of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
There could be a one-two punch this allergy season. That’s because the normal springtime allergies could be coupled with mold hidden behind the walls of homes flooded by Sandy.
Contractors were were supposed to cut up trees, install water heaters, and remove mold from homes on Long Island damaged by superstorm Sandy.
With walls covered in mold, as well as rats and cockroaches everywhere, people in an apartment building in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx have had enough.
The home isn’t really livable, but one Long Island family hit hard by superstorm Sandy has been forced back into it.
Many flood-damaged homes have now become infested with toxic mold in the months since superstorm Sandy hit.
New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio on Saturday announced a plan to fight the proliferation of mold in homes and businesses that sustained flooding during Superstorm Sandy.
Superstorm Sandy may be more than a month behind us, but the danger still lingers in damaged homes.
Homeowners in Long Island’s flood zones have been taking precautions, using protective suits, masks, gloves and boots as they warily clear muck, sewage and mold-infested wallboard. Hundreds of residents have been seeking medical attention.
In damaged neighborhoods in the city, there’s something of a pecking order based on color in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.
With the extended flooding due to Sandy’s storm surge, officials said it is best for residents to take their time now rather than deal with bigger problems down the road.
In the storm-ravaged, flood-damaged Brooklyn community of Gerritsen Beach, residents were worried about the mold and the repairs as work went on to get back to normal.
The water has receded from most homes, but that doesn’t mean they’re completely dried out. The damp conditions created by Superstorm Sandy leave many at risk for mold growth.
The closure will have a ripple effect on the rest of the district because students will have to share the high school on a split session.
