One of many subway stations that flooded during Hurricane Sandy.
A state commission is
ready to recommend
the installation of rolldown gates at subway station entrances in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
The gates presumably would do a better job of keeping water out. Right now plywood is now used.
The MTA says Sandy caused nearly 5 billion dollars in damage.
