The Port Authority is shoring up its facilities as it prepares for another hurricane season.

Hurricane Sandy caused $2 billion in damage to the agency, and at a board meeting Wednesday, members approved $59 million for storm mitigation projects.

That will include protective metal panels at PATH stations, a generator at LaGuardia Airport, and a variety of pumps, watertight doors and flood barriers.

The agency has now spent or authorized $450 million on repairs and recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy.
