The Morning Cram [meet me tonight in atlantic city edition]
From NPR: It’s a month after Hurricane Sandy, and Atlantic City wants its visitors back. Very few of the tourist attractions like casinos and restaurants suffered damage although television coverage of the storm left many potential visitors with the idea that the boardwalk was destroyed. Now the city is taking action to show that all is well and up and running.
Blood donations have been in high demand since Super Storm ‘Sandy’ struck the eastern seaboard. As part of a national network, blood gathered by the Lexington-based Kentucky Blood Center has been sent to disaster areas. Blood Center spokeswoman Denise Fields says some blood products collect in the commonwealth have already been sent to New York.
Hurricane Sandy is the largest Atlantic tropical system on record, stretching from the Caribbean to Canada. She flooded heavily populated areas, left millions without power, claimed 87 lives overall (so far), and closed Wall Street. Sandy is now a post-tropical cyclone moving northwest.
