Statement from 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels on the Condition of the Memorial and Museum after Sandy
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum endured Hurricane Sandy, but not without costs. River surges caused serious flooding at our offsite facilities and at the foundation level of the World Trade Center, where the Museum is under construction. We will have a clearer picture of the extent of the damages as our dedicated response teams continue work to remove water. Initial assessments show the Memorial fared well. We are working closely with the state, city and the Port Authority to reopen the Memorial as soon as possible.
