Hurricane Sandy Cars

This photo was taken last week flying over the old Grumman test facility, Calverton Airport, on Long Island. The airport is currently being used as a storage facility for the vehicles flooded by Hurricane Sandy You will have to enlarge the photo on your screen to really get an idea of the amount of cars which you are looking at. There are about 30,000 vehicles currently located there and more arriving each day.
Calverton Airport is where the wreckage of TWA 800 was reassembled for forensic purposes. Both runways are completely full. The total length of the runways is about 16,000 feet in length. That’s a lot of cars. And just imagine how many homes were affected as well. But this photograph gives you a very vivid and compact impression of the damage wrought by the storm.
