Tampa Bay Area Emergency Team Deploying to New York City
A team of emergency managers is deploying to New York City on Friday, Nov. 9, to assist in the relief effort in response to Hurricane Sandy. The team will assemble in the terminal in front of Airside A at 8:30 at Tampa International Airport to fly to their assignment.
The storm, which made landfall on Oct. 29, has become the second costliest hurricane in American history – passing 2008’s Hurricane Ike. The difficult situation was compounded by a Nor’Easter, which dumped additional rain and snow on the New York City metropolitan area.
The team is expected to return to Florida on Tuesday, Nov. 20.
