Many of our members in New York and New Jersey are still without power and will be for the next few weeks. The houses of a few members were destroyed by the devastating hurricane including a member of Coast Guard Local 2747.
Some areas of New Jersey have issued a curfew due to the widespread power outage but the potential of looters still lingers. In addition, the gas shortage has greatly affected members’ ability to get to work.
The aftermath of the storm is now affecting voting in both New York and New Jersey as many people’s voting location has changed. Please check with your local Board of Elections for more information.
We will continue to keep you posted about the status of our members affected by Superstorm Sandy.
