On Monday evening, Hurricane Sandy brought destruction to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions of the United States, leaving much of the area without water, electricity, and other basic amenities. In light of the ongoing effects of the damage, PLOS ONE would like to express our deepest sympathies for those dealing with the impacts of the storm and send our best wishes for the recovery efforts.
For our authors who may be waiting for your manuscript to be handled, please note that submissions may be delayed in their review as many of our Editors and reviewers are based in these regions. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
