6 Months After Sandy, Thousands Homeless In NY, NJ

Posted: Updated:

MANTOLOKING, N.J. (AP) - Six months after Superstorm Sandy, tens of thousands of people in New York and New Jersey remain homeless and communities are still struggling to recover.
    
But progress has been made as well. New boardwalks will be ready for summer, and homes are being elevated even as ruined ones are bulldozed.
    
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says some people are doing just fine while others are facing "horrendous" obstacles to recovery.
    
The federal government has paid billions in flood insurance claims and housing assistance in the two states, with more to come.
    
Lynda Fricchione (frik-ee-OHN'), whose Toms River, N.J., home was ruined, says a trip to New Orleans showed her people and communities can recover from terrible storms.
