Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other officials have kicked off what’s billed as a “Sandy Resiliency Tour” at the National Museum of the American Indian.

The Lower Manhattan museum was temporarily shut down last year by flooding and power outages.

Cuomo recalled the “feeling of powerlessness” seeing the southern tip of Manhattan submerged in water.

He also warned that extreme weather is “the new normal.” But said the city and state are now better equipped to withstand it.

The governor says it sometimes takes a crisis “to appreciate a new reality.”
