Long Island storm damage

Here is an estimate of occupied housing that was damaged in Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee and Superstorm Sandy, by municipalities with the largest number of damaged units. The chart shows how Nassau and Suffolk renters did relative to other New York counties most affected.

The estimates by the Governor's Office of Storm Recovery are broken down by renter-occupied and owner-occupied housing, as well as by minor, major and severe levels of damage. Classifications are based on FEMA estimates adjusted to account for flooding, with properties receiving at least one foot of flooding considered major or severely damaged, depending on flood depth. Communities not on the list had smaller numbers of damaged units.
