• Travel to US northeast continues despite storms

    CWT’s Elizabeth Rugile joins us today with a photo post from New York.

    Following the destruction of hurricane/superstorm Sandy, individuals and businesses in the U.S. northeast are still in the midst of the recovery process. And especially given the recent snowstorms in the region, the process is likely to take quite a bit of time. But as that work continues, travelers continue to visit the region – some to assist in the recovery, and others to do business or contribute to the region through tourism.

    Below are a few photos from my recent trip to New York, a place where the impact of the storm continues to be felt, but the recent U.S. presidential election still drew crowds.

    Do you live in, or have you traveled to an area impacted by the storm? We hope you are safe! And if you have any advice for visitors to your region, please feel free to share them in the comments below.

    Hello. I work for CWT Solutions Group in Minnesota, but I am originally from the NJ Shore, and my family still lives there. So, the events were very personal and close to home for me. I created a video tribute to my family, friends and the people of NJ. Thank you for sharing these images. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yudk_4I-slQ
