Sandy and vulnerable infrastructure

One of the surprises for me in the aftermath of Sandy was the impact that Sandy had on some Internet services. To me, this was a foreseeable event. Not that I have any inside information on predicting storm surges, but, this event was within the realm of possibility already, and, it nearly happened Aug 28-29 last year. And yet, somehow, some companies were caught unprepared even with the long leadtime that this had.

Looked at another way -- I can't predict something like this in advance, but, I can predict with high confidence that an event like this will happen somewhere. Why leave your company vulnerable to such a probable occurrence?
