Overall, Newport was mostly spared the wrath that was Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy on October 29th, 2012.

The Cliff Walk and Ocean Drive were heavily damaged and portions of downtown Newport saw flooding like they had never seen before.

A portion of The Cliff Walk was closed for nearly two years and reopened in June 2014 after a $5.2 million restoration.
