Fordham Conversations: Six Months After Sandy

Hurricane Sandy Road Ahead

This week we catch up with Kendra Newkirk, who lost her home to Super Storm Sandy almost half a year ago.

Sandy was the deadliest and most destructive storm of the 2012 hurricane season. It was also the second-costliest hurricane in U.S. history. Monday marks six-months since the Superstorm struck our area.


On this week's Fordham Conversations we hear from Fordham alum Kendra Newkirk.  A few days after moving into her new house in Queens, Sandy hit, washing away almost everything Kendra owned. We talk with Kendra just after the storm hit and again a-half-a year later.  But first we also hear from Fordham Professor Mark Naison. He spearheaded an outreach effort to help Kendra recover from Sandy's wrath.


You can hear Fordham Conversation’s every Saturday at 7am on 90.7 WFUV or at
