NEW YORK - A panel commissioned by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has released its recommendations on how the state can better prepare for another superstorm in the aftermath of Sandy.

The advisements include a state fuel reserve, citizen training, tougher building codes, gas station generators and a depot of emergency provisions.

Cuomo has warned that the cost will be a big obstacle, but he plans to recommend some ideas in his State of the State address next week.
