We are a family of three that live on the south shore of Long Island that was and is still impacted by Hurricane Sandy. We had about three feet of salt water and what ever else was in that water in our home. As of today 7/09/13 we are still out of our house living in an apartment, we are paying our mortage as well as rent. The repairs are far from over and we have no idea when we will be back home. The work on our one level ranch style house has begun and is moving along very slowly. We estimate returning home before the fall which will be close to a year after "Sandy" hit. We had flood insurance but what FEMA is paying out will just about get us back into our house, at that point the real rebuilding will begin. Being that we lived in a one level ranch style house and had over 3 feet of water in our house we will have to replace everything from my seven year old sons toys to the littlest things that we take for granted everyday. Thank you for this opportunity.
