BROOKLYN - A new federal report is offering solutions on how cities like New York can plan for and weather another superstorm.

The report recommends 69 strategies on how to better respond to and prepare for a storm like Sandy.

Officials recommend installing microgrids and using alternative energy to avoid widespread power outages in the future.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan say they've raised billions of dollars to pay for such strategies but say it's up to local communities to ask for and implement the changes.
