In New York City, thousands of people marched over the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday, marking the fifth anniversary of Superstorm Sandy and calling for urgent action on climate change. On October 29, 2012, the hurricane blasted New York, New Jersey and parts of New England with a record storm surge as high as 13 feet, ultimately killing 159 people along the East Coast and damaging more than 650,000 homes. The storm caused $70 billion in damage across eight states. Saturday’s marchers called on state and city officials to invest in clean energy while divesting from fossil fuel companies and the banks that finance them.
