A Look Back at Hurricane Sandy One Year Later

A look back at Hurricane Sandy's destruction.

As the sun rose on Oct. 29, 2012, Long Islanders knew Hurricane Sandy was going to pack a punch, but few predicted the extent of the devastation. 

Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer called Sandy "Our Katrina," referring to the storm that slammed the Gulf Coast in 2005. 

Many were without power for days, some for more than a week after Sandy struck. A gas shortage meant many gas stations were shut down and the ones that were open had lines stretching a half mile down the road. 

Deer Park and North Babylon fared better than their neighbors on the coastline, but the area was still battered hard and shut down schools for a week. Check out the photos above of some of the scenes of destruction around town after Sandy hit.
