New York State Ready

A Mantoloking home built on stilts survived Sandy.  It used to be surrounded by dunes, but all the sand washed away in the storm.

Irwin Redlener, director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia School of Public Health and founder of the Children's Health Fund talks about his work as the co-chair of the post-Sandy New York State Ready commission. He is also the author of Americans at Risk: Why We Are Not Prepared for Megadisasters and What We Can Do
