Long Beach Community Joins to Reflect, Recognize and Resolve on Superstorm Sandy Anniversary
Officials, Residents and Friends Look to Past, Future at Emotional Ceremony
Saturday, October 26 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m @ Kennedy Plaza, City Hall.
The City of Long Beach will be holding what is expected to be an emotional ceremony on Saturday, October 26 to commemorate the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy’s landfall and ensuing destructive path through their city and the rest of Long Island. The ceremony will take place at Kennedy Plaza in front of Long Beach City Hall, which served as a hub of emergency operations during the response and recovery efforts immediately following the storm.
Federal, state and local elected officials will speak to approximately one thousand emergency responders, residents and friends about the City’s record-pace recovery from Sandy’s destruction, while also focusing on the work yet to be done in order to bring home fellow residents and neighbors who remain displaced. The ceremony will also feature a 15-minute video by local filmmakers that documents the emotional scenes and stories of survival and recovery after Sandy and provides a retrospective of the previous year’s restoration efforts.
