Sandy: Natural gas saves the day for some

| November 07, 2012

Overdrive sister site Equipment World has a short write-up from Tom Jackson on how those using natural gas for necessary heating, cooking and power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s landfall fared much better than those relying just on electrical power.

Why? “This is for a simple reason,” Jackson writes — gas infrastructure is underground, safe from wind, water and damage, while power poles and lines are above ground and bear the brunt of severe weather.

See Jackson’s full write-up here.
