Superstorm Sandy flooded or dropped snow on much of the eastern U.S. on Oct. 29, 2012, becoming the nation's second-most expensive weather disaster at $65 billion and killing at least 182 people after claiming dozens of other lives in the Caribbean.
A year after Superstorm Sandy flooded the eastern U.S. coastline, thousands of people still trying to fix their homes are being stymied by bureaucracy, insurance disputes and uncertainty over whether they can even afford to rebuild.
