Poll: Jersey Still Feeling Effects of Sandy

Two-thirds of residents say state not back to normal.

Newsworks reports: “A new poll finds that two-thirds of New Jersey residents believe the state is not back to normal 18 months after Superstorm Sandy. Just one in 12 of those who say the recovery isn’t complete are optimistic that it will be in the next year, according to the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll out Wednesday. And 13 percent don’t think the state will ever return to normal.”

Some events are too big and disruptive to be undisrupted completely, and Sandy was probably one of them. Still, it might help if aid to Sandy survivors wasn’t being distributed so slowly.
