BROOKLYN - It's been nearly a year since Superstorm Sandy, but it's wrath is still very evident inside the small gated community of Sea Gate.

The neighborhood has been slowly picking up the pieces after the storm leveled homes, flipped cars, ripped trees from the ground and left debris scattered across their neighborhood last October.

Mohammad Choudhary is among the many Sea Gate residents living with a daily reminder of what happened.

Choudhary says he received help from FEMA, but the money covered only about a quarter of the needed repairs so he’s not only still rebuilding his home, but also still trying to pay for it.
