USCIB’s New York headquarters and Washington, D.C. office were able to resume normal operations within days following last week’s “superstorm.”
After casting a wide swath of destruction across the Caribbean, Hurricane Sandy set its sights on the Middle Atlantic and Northeast U.S. coast. It hit the region hard, battering the shoreline, sending a storm surge into New York harbor and surrounding waters that caused widespread flooding, while downing trees and knocking out power to millions of people in the region.
While many USCIB staff members suffered material losses and disruption, we are grateful to have largely been spared the worst of the storm, and our thoughts and prayers go out to those more severely affected. We urge you to help with ongoing assistance and reconstruction efforts.
