NOVA: Megastorm Aftermath

Airs Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: Water soaked roads filled with sand from beach in Rockaway Beach, Queens, an area affected by Hurricane Sandy on November 3, 2012.

In October 2012, superstorm Sandy cut a path of devastation across the Caribbean and the East Coast, killing hundreds and doing tens of billions of dollars in damage. Now, a year after Sandy’s deadly strike, correspondent Miles O’Brien and NOVA follow up on the 2012 film “Inside the Megastorm” with a fresh investigation of the critical questions raised by this historic storm.

Sandy's Warning

Hurricane Sandy has renewed the debate over climate change in the United States, and two high-profile reports released since the storm have made it clear that without big changes we're headed for an extremely serious climate disruption. Reporter Sam Eaton takes a look at what would have to happen to avoid the most catastrophic effects of global warming. Listen to the story

Was Hurricane Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to a changing climate? What can we do to prepare ourselves for the next Sandy, and what progress has been made toward making our urban infrastructure more resilient?
