The PC360 staff is used to hearing and writing about catastrophes, but it is rare for so many of us to be in the middle of a severe weather event ourselves. For those of us who work out of Summit Business Media’s Hoboken office, we simply do not see the types of extreme weather that many of our readers to the south, west and even north of us regularly contend with. 

So when “Superstorm” Sandy struck, it was jolting for us. Scarier still is the thought that other areas of the country are almost annually under threat from hurricanes with far higher wind speeds.
