Tidball leads NY EDEN efforts to prepare for and respond to Hurricane Sandy

Cornell Cooperative Extension's NY Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN), led by Keith Tidball of Cornell Department of Natural Resources, was heavily involved in a blitz of preparedness and readiness disaster education in the days prior to Hurricane Sandy's landfall, and in disaster education dealing with response and recovery after the Hurricane damaged large portions of New York City and Long Island. As a part of these activities, Tidball and other members of the NY EDEN team and the CCE Disaster and All-hazards Response Team (DART) were called upon to provide research-based information to the news media. A sampling is presented below:
