Hurricane Sandy was a post-tropical cyclone that swept through the Caribbean and up the East Coast of the United States in October of 2012. The hurricane caused close to $62 billion in damage in the United States and at least $315 million in the Caribbean. In its immediate wake, VERTEX quickly mobilized engineering and construction specialist teams to evaluate the cost of damages to hundreds of buildings and structures within a three-month time frame. As a result, insurance companies were able to resolve coverage issues promptly to kick-start the rebuilding process.
