Flying the coast to assess storm damage

We need a bird's-eye view to determine the full effect of Sandy's storm surge and heavy rains on national wildlife refuges along the coast. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service pilots have flown over several refuges, including Chincoteague, Prime Hook and E.B. Forsythe. They will continue their aerial surveys over Long Island and the southern New England coast in the next few days.
