Lemme guess. Saudi Arabia with strings attached?
Israel sent a relief mission. Perhaps there were others.
I can’t figure out why someone with a bit of money does not put out the word that they will give $150.00 per gun. They can then resell them. And no one will sell there guns to the state.
Our poor people are fat... Other countries really don’t need to help us.
When they heard non union electricians couldn’t volunteer, some of the countries were afraid they would have to join a union in order to help?
it was a CAT ONE... get over it and rebuild.
seriously, wtf. yes, some houses got flooded and some were washed away. yes, there was flood damage. you didn’t prepare properly or observe proper building codes to insure a 10-20 ft storm surge wouldn’t wreck your stuff
come to Florida and see how much attention a cat one gets from the fedgov and other countries.
I remember after 911 an African tribe sent us cattle. Probably a goodly percentage of the tribes worth as they account for it. Stand up folks.
India Takes Over NASA’s Defunct Satellite to Track Sandy
November 2, 2012
Ocean surface winds for Hurricane Sandy observed at 9:00 p.m. PDT Oct. 28 by the OSCAT radar scatterometer on the Indian Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) OceanSat-2 satellite.

NASA and weather and climate scientists all over the world have been receiving help from Indias Space Applications Center (SAC) to track Hurricane Sandy. The Indian Space Research Organizations OSCAT radar scatterometer, which travels on board its OceanSat-2 satellite, has been sending valuable image data at near-real time to NASA and NOAA.
OSCAT, designed and developed at SAC, Ahmedabad, is similar to the now defunct QuikSCAT satellite from NASA. Since QuikSCAT ceased operations in 2009, engineers and scientists from NOAA, JPL and NASA have worked with ISRO to validate and calibrate OSCAT measurements to ensure seamless coverage of ocean vector winds, critical for the global climate weather forecasting field.
ISROs OceanSat-2, together with NASAs Cloudsat satellite and Aqua and Terra spacecraft, played a critical role in helping track Superstorm Sandy.
