    the US economy will slow even further in 2013 due to Sandy's impact, 60 million people in the highest income sector of the country are hunkered down for weeks if not months, insurance only covers a portion of flooding losses and the permitting process will be tedious leading to many many contractor scams, it will be a colossal mess for years
