On October 29, 2012, Superstorm Sandy made landfall along the mid-Atlantic region of the eastern seaboard. Once on land, Sandy collided with a large weather system already dropping extensive rain in the region. The result was significant storm surge and high winds that heavily impacted communities from Delaware through Rhode Island.
