Hundreds Remain Homeless

New York and the East Coast are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy, a superstorm that caused billions in damage, forced the closure of public transit systems and left milllions in the dark. Here's  a look at the numbers behind the storm. Deborah Creighton Skinner and Dominique Zonyéé

 

A year after “Superstorm” Sandy developed from a tropical wave in the Caribbean Sea on October 22, 2013, hundreds of victims remain displaced without permanent homes and more. In New Jersey an estimated 39,000 families are homeless, down from 161,000 the day after the storm. In New York, more than 250 families are still living in hotel rooms paid for by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
