BTN LiveBIG: Rutgers engineering smart Sandy rebuild

It has been almost two years since Super Storm Sandy devastated the eastern seaboard, but the impact is still painfully apparent. Families and businesses are still trying to rebuild, and Rutgers is working to ensure that the new New Jersey is more resistent and better prepared for the next major storm.
