My roommate was watching the news on Hurricane Sandy, and mentioned that the depth of the water flooding Battery Park was 3.5 feet higher than the previous record.  That was when I realized that there must be a lot of numbers I could use from this storm.  I could get a bunch of them, list them, and then take the sum.

So I posted on Facebook:

I'm looking for numbers connected with Sandy - like $5,000,000 (approximate dollars the Atlantic City casinos lose peach day they are closed) or 13 (states where people are without power). Any suggestions?

So here goes:
  • 3.5  = The depth of the water in Battery Park over any previous time on record
  • 5,000,000 = The amount (in dollars) that the casinos in Atlantic City are losing total, per day  that are closed.
  • 13 = the number of states where electricity is out somewhere
  • 0 = number of numbers my Facebook friends gave for my post  

Total = 5,000,016.5


  1. 109. The death toll as of today. :(
