Overall, Newport was mostly spared the wrath that was Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy on October 29th, 2012.
The Cliff Walk and Ocean Drivewere heavily damaged and portions of downtown Newport saw flooding like they had never seen before.
A portion of The Cliff Walkwas closed for nearly two years and reopened in June 2014after a $5.2 million restoration.
