November 14 - EDEN's Flood NEIL hosted a second conference call for delegates in affected states. The first call was held November 5. EDEN has created a "Sandy Recovery" collaboration space for document sharing and communication within the recovery group. All EDEN delegates can access the space; only members of the group can contribute. Login is required.
October 28 - EDEN ECOP Liaison, Paul Coreil, offered assistance to directors and program administrators of Extension programs in the affected states. The specific, and unusual, offer was for EDEN to create back-up capability for critial web-based communications and outreach resources for each state, to be used if the member's websites were taken off line by the storm.
EDEN initiated tracking of Sandy on October 23 and newly-installed EDEN Chair, Rick Atterberry, sent a first all-delegates alert on October 26. A second alert was sent October 27 which included the names of the states in which FEMA has initiated response activities: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia. Delegates are encouraged to submit Response Notes.
Flooding is a major concern in the affected areas. See the Floods and Flooding Topic page for information on flood impacts and additional resources.
