Submission + - Post Disaster Technology

An anonymous reader writes: I am a long time reader of Slashdot and a recent victim of hurricane Sandy. I am wondering what the /. community thinks about how long it will take to restore internet, cable and phone lines to those communities completely devastated by the storm. It took Rockaway, NY longer than the rest of the city to get internet in the first place. We have been without power for three weeks now with massive damage to everything from water lines to power substations. Anyone in the telecommunications industry who knows about repairing lines and and time frames for basically building a new telecommunications infrastructure would be of real help. Me and my friends just want to know when life will ever even resemble normal again. Thanks.
