      and it would have been very useful during Hurricane Sandy and the aftermath.

      NYU hospital had to evacuate the night of the storm after their back-up generator failed.

      Bellevue managed on back-up power for 2 days before they had to evacuate.

      There were many others who needed medical care, and there was very limited transportation for the first few days.  

      People couldn't just walk 50 - 80 blocks to the next nearest hospital.

        I was live blogging New Orleans hospitals during Katrina. I learned a lot more about how hospitals serve cities than I learned about disasters. Jindal is apparently brain damaged by ideology. I demand a scan.
