State DOTs Share Sandy Images

It has been a few days since Hurricane Sandy slammed her way through the mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states. Throughout the storm and as soon as the winds subsided after the storm, state DOT crews were on the job clearing roads of debris and closing roads too damaged to open.

As if we needed a reminder of the importance of photos in our communications programs, here are a few images from a few of the states affected by Hurricane Sandy. The stories these photos tell are truly worth thousands of words.
