The Aftermath of Superstorm Sandy

The Aftermath of Superstorm Sandy

A large tree limb fell during the storm, but was quickly cleared away by our fantastic gardeners.

We were very fortunate to avoid major damage as a result of Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy. Some bent flowers and a few downed limbs, but no major flooding or large trees down. Though Dumbarton Oaks was closed both Monday October 29 and Tuesday October 30, we reopened with completely normal operations on Wednesday October 31. A big thank you to all of our garden, security, and operations staff who kept our institution safe!

More images of the Gardens after Sandy are available on the garden blog.
