‘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.”
