Please help BIA get back on its feet after Hurricane Irene?
August 28th, 2011
Hurricane Irene came and went just a few weeks ago. We sighed with relief believing that we passed the storm. Unfortunately we rejoiced too soon. At high tide, in the wake of the storm, the ocean breached the sea wall and flooded lower Bridgeport drowning us in several feet of water. Although we had made extensive preparations, we didn’t foresee the water coming up into the building, through the basement floors, gushing into the apartments, destroying the beautiful new floors we had just finished installing over the summer.
