Everything You Need to Know About the Sandy Recovery in One Big Chart

As compiled by the folks at Porch.com

The folks at Porch.com—a home renovation website—have compiled this chart of information about the recovery from Hurricane Sandy. “We compiled data to highlight the aftermath’s effects on home repairs and insurance payouts a year after Sandy made landfall. With statistics on over 90 million home repair and improvement projects, Porch analysts hammered out data on preventative and reactive measures that were enacted after Hurricane Sandy’s landfall. Following the storm, an estimated 651,000 housing units were destroyed or damaged in the massive storm – 340,000 in New Jersey and 305,000 in the greater New York City area – with 22,000 housing units completely uninhabitable.”

That’s just the beginning. Check the chart after the jump:
