                  Super Storm Sandy was a devastating event that caused death, destruction and billions of dollars in property damage in its wake. One fact that was brought out during the onslaught of that huge hurricane was the need to update our nation’s weather forecasting and emergency management systems. We talk to a journalist and author who conducted research on the storm, the systems that tracked it and found out how our weather forecasting, tracking and evacuation protocols and equipment need to be modernized to deal with the extreme weather that climate change will bring us in the future.

                    from (add)ventures / Added

                    In late October 2012, Hurricane Sandy pounded the East Coast with high winds, heavy rains and rough seas, leaving massive destruction in its wake. Many communities – especially in New York and New Jersey – were devastated by the superstorm, and are still trying to recover. Deeply connected to these communities through its CVS/pharmacy stores and charitable partnerships, CVS Caremark sprung into action to help communities that were overwhelmed by the storm. From setting up mobile pharmacies and temporary stores in order to provide access to important medications and supplies, to establishing a co-pay waiver program for customers in hard hit communities, to providing significant donations to the American Red Cross and local social service organizations – CVS Caremark has provided significant support to relief efforts since Hurricane Sandy hit. With this documentary-style treatment in mind for the video, the (add)ventures and CVS teams set forth to identify and plan video productions around the “real stories” of individuals, organizations and communities in New York and New Jersey that were greatly impacted by CVS Caremarkʼs support.
