LITTLE FERRY, N.J. (AP) — U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan and Gov. Chris Christie have toured parts of northern New Jersey devastated by Superstorm Sandy.
The two held a news conference Tuesday in Little Ferry, not far from the Meadowlands sports complex. The area suffered heavy flooding when a tidal surge sent the Hackensack River over its banks last October.
Donovan heads the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force.
On Monday, he released a report that makes 69 recommendations for developing a strategy for rebuilding areas damaged by Sandy.
Most of the recommendations focus on planning for future storms in an age of climate change and rising sea levels. It calls for development of a more advanced electrical grid and the creation of better planning tools and standards for storm-damaged communities.
