Life After Hurricane Sandy: The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy by Jean Laurie

As the president of the Ocean Breeze Civic Association, Jean Laurie loves her little beach community in Staten Island, New York. Generations of families grew up in the safety and beauty of this charming town.

That sense of security is shattered in October of 2012 when Hurricane Sandy barrels into New York.

The super-storm devastates Ocean Breeze, destroying both property and lives. But in the aftermath, Laurie is touched by how the community comes together with volunteers and churches from around the world to help restore some semblance of normal life. While many do their utmost to help, however, others see opportunity in tragedy.

Battling the city and government agencies for the aid Ocean Breeze desperately needs becomes a daily challenge as red tape and politicians more interested in photo opportunities than actually helping residents who have lost everything delay much needed aid for months on end.

Despite the setbacks, the community rallies and ultimately shows strength, resourcefulness, and mutual support that Laurie cannot forget.

Life after Hurricane Sandy is written in honor of those who refused to let political wrangling and a natural disaster destroy their neighborhoods. Where the state, government, and city failed, people helping each other succeeded.
