On October 29, 2012, record storm-surge from hurricane Sandy hit the northeastern United States causing an estimated 11 billion gallons of untreated and partially treated sewage into many local waterways presenting an environmental health hazard. The flows traveled about 4 km. to the lower flanks of the volcano, adjacent to previous flows from eruptions in 1968 and 1978. Approximately, there is one every 87 seconds. Annually, on an average, there are 800 quakes capable of causing damage with a magnitude of 5-5.9, and 18 major ones with a magnitude of 7 or more.
