Irene Anniversary

Three years after Tropical Storm Irene tore through New York,  one upstate county has completed restoration efforts.

Irene destroyed many Greene County communities - affecting several roads and bridges. Now county officials say all repair and rebuild projects as a result of the storm have been finished.


Two years after Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee and almost one year after Superstorm Sandy altered New York’s land and seascapes, relief aid --- from both private donors and government agencies --- has been painfully slow in coming, as communities struggle to return to normal.
