‘Long way to normal’ in Long Beach in Sandy recovery efforts

Long way to normal on Long Beach

Superstorm Sandy has changed life utterly¬† in Long Beach. Weeks after she left, residents are still struggling to get their life back. A recent Tuesday morning saw the sun shining brightly under a clear blue sky;¬† the ocean waves splashed onto the beach and birds sang on the trees. But the background noise in this beach community was the constant thrum of debris-collecting trucks. One resident said “life is still a long way to normal.”
