  2. the impact on electrical and power companies. sandy impacted power companies in good and bad ways the bad ways were that it left 640000 new yorkers with out power and other blown transformers. some of the good was that 7800 workers assisted in repairing the outages also the stock of many electrical companies traded as a higher rate in the stock exchange.

    10 to 12 feet of water flooded the hospitals basements and elevators. The power went out forcing hospital staff to evacuate the patients. Patients included four newborn babies who relied on repirators to breathe. With no power to run the respirators, each baby was carried down 9 flights of stairs while a nurse manually squeezed a bag to deliver to the baby’s lungs.

    Impact on High School, College, and Professional Sports

    For High School, states including Conneticut, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts banned all athletic events taking place on Sunday. Also in New Jersey, high school football fields were completely underwater.

    On the College Level, no NCAA football games will be held until Thursday, November 1. Many college basketball teams such as those from Virginia Commonwealth University, Villanova and Virgina still maintained their practice schedule despite canceled classes.

    Professional sports were also effected. The NFL pushed back the trading deadline to November 1. NBA teams revised travel plans due to canceled air flights for season openers. On Monday night, only one NFL game was played on the west coast. Also on Monday, no NBA or NHL games were played.

    Athletic Buisness was my strongest source.
