New Jersey estimates repair and response costs at $312.7 million for Atlantic City, which had to evacuate some of its 40,000 residents and shut seaside casinos.
New York State estimates $6.6 billion in recovery and prevention costs for Nassau County and $1.7 billion for its eastern counterpart, Suffolk County. For Suffolk County alone, not counting its municipalities, the cost is $70 million.
