BROOKLYN - A new Superstorm Sandy report is outlining the ongoing issues in Brooklyn's hardest hit communities. 

The report from the Brooklyn Recovery Fund is the result of feedback from victims in Red Hook, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Gerritsen Beach and Canarsie. 

It found that the five biggest struggles a year and a half after the superstorm are housing and rebuilding, health, immigration and undocumented communities, businesses and jobs, and infrastructure. 

The Brooklyn Recovery Fund, which was established by the Brooklyn Community Foundation, says the report proves many residents are still in need of more financial help.
