Sandy’s Affects Still Being Felt At Linden Fuel Terminal

LINDEN – Nearly one month after Superstorm Sandy made landfall in New Jersey, workers at the Gulf Oil terminal are still operating out of a temporary trailer as they oversee the distribution of over one million gallons of gasoline, diesel and heating oil, according to a report by Reuters.

While the facility is operating at “close to full capacity,” workers estimate that it will take six months before everything is completely back to normal. The storm spared the facility’s eight towering fuel tanks, capable of holding more than 20 million gallons of fuel, but the office flooded and workers were faced with the challenge of restoring power to their pumps to keep the gasoline flowing.
