Rutgers report: University handled Sandy well

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — A Rutgers University task force has found the university handled Superstorm Sandy well but offers some areas for improvement.

The document says the state’s flagship public university needs to come up with plans to make sure emergency power is available in the highest-priority places and to strengthen its computer networks.

University Emergency Management Director Steve Keleman says work is being done to meet all the major recommendations.

No one was injured on campus in the October 2012 storm.

The findings are not explosive. But the report itself has been the center of some dispute.

The university says it was intended mostly as an internal document and was completed in March.

It was made public Monday after open records requests from New Brunswick Today and a university employees’ union.
