Hurricane Sandy still felt nearly one year later

By SPENCER DAVIDSON

(WKTV) - Thousands of people are still recovering from Superstorm Sandy that ripped through the east coast last year.

The violent storm hit the New York area on October 29, 2012, and caused major damages that are still being address nearly one year later.

The storm not only damaged property, but also caused insurance disputes, and left home-owners with uncertainty over whether or not they could afford to rebuild their devastated houses.

The Federal Government approved billions of dollars to help aid victims of the storm, however, much of it has yet to make its way to the home-owners affected.

Sandy killed at least 181 people, and left an estimated $65 billion in damage.
