Scenes from Hurricane Sandy, one year later

Top: Water continues to flood a neighborhood on November 1, 2012 in the Ocean Breeze area of the Staten Island borough of New York City. Most homes in the seaside community were inundated by the ocean surge caused by Superstorm Sandy. Bottom: Janet Hague stands in her back yard on October 17, 2013 in the Ocean Breeze area of the Staten Island borough of New York City. Her home was heavily damaged by Sandy flood waters and after almost a year of renovations, she moved back in on October 15. Hurricane Sandy made landfall on October 29, 2012 near Brigantine, New Jersey and affected 24 states from Florida to Maine and cost the country an estimated $65 billion.
