Still recovering from Sandy, Crisfield braces for the next challenge
The ability of Crisfield and other communities to recover from Superstorm Sandy and implement measures to protect against future storms will hinge in part on whether Congress approves a roughly $50 billion bill that calls for more spending on flood control, shoreline protection and other storm mitigation projects. The Senate passed the measure on Dec. 28, and the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote Tuesday.
