No need to argue with halfwits.
Indeed, so my reccomendation would be to bring the thread away from this "halfwit" who has clearly upset / irritated a couple of you.

I think there are still some sensible messages of encouragement and discussions of your recoveries that can be had here. Let's get the trhead back on topic.

The one thing i would like to know if who after 3 days of the storm being over comes up with an estimate of 50 - 55 billion $ worth of damages?
I mean where do you even begin evaluating the cost of a storm that big?

I think they work off statistics from the past like the last one at New Orleans in 2005 from hurricane Katrina which Cost $105 billion dollars, so they would have an idea what damages Hurricane Sandy has done compared to Hurricane Katrina.... then again I could be wrong.

From what I can find now, it seems they have adjusted the number to around $20 Million.

I don't normally bring up dead threads, but here's a new article that more accurately details the total cost of the storm.

New York, New Jersey put $71 billion price tag on Sandy - Yahoo! News

They put it at around $71 Billion dollars. There are a bunch of other numbers to consider as well:
Sandy destroyed 305,000 houses in New York state
Sandy also caused nearly 2.2 million power outages at its peak in the state

Just a small reminder that there is still a massive need in the area affected by the storm...
