Superstorm Sandy hit Connecticut back in October 2012. Since then, residents of Connecticut’s coastal towns have tried to rebuild, but some have also moved on.

In this hour, we talk about the 10-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy and how climate change is impacting our aging infrastructure.

We spoke with a resident of Fairfield, Connecticut, whose home was flooded during the storm.


  • Dick Dmochowski - resident of Fairfield, Connecticut
  • Jim O’Donnell - Professor of Marine Sciences and Executive Director of CIRCA at the University of Connecticut
  • Jenn Marlon - Senior Research Scientist at the Yale School of the Environment
