BROOKLYN - It's been exactly six months since Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, and for many, the road to recovery has not yet come to an end.

Brooklyn was among the hardest hit areas, with thousands of residents being forced from their homes and hundreds of local businesses being shut down for months. Floodwaters left many neighborhoods under water and covered with debris, especially in Coney Island where the rebuilding process is ongoing.

Thousands of others in New York and New Jersey remain homeless as a result of the storm, and many are still trying to figure out insurance claims.

Federal and state officials announced on Friday a $1.7 billion plan to help homeowners and businesses pick up the pieces after not only Sandy, but also Tropical Storms Irene and Lee.
