Hundreds Still Displaced by Sandy Damage in Connecticut

A year after Superstorm Sandy drove Deborah Dinan from her Milford home, she lives above a loud bar and is often reduced to tears as she struggles to return to her flood ravaged home.

Dinan, a 59-year-old former nurse on disability due to health problems, is trying to come up with the money to repair and elevate her home.

In Milford alone, officials say at least 200 families remain displaced since Sandy struck.

Many storm victims are required to elevate their homes. Some are hoping to get federal government grants to help pay the expense but applications are only now being accepted.

Many homeowners are overwhelmed trying to figure out how to rebuild as they deal with insurers, contractors and local, state and federal officials.
