The barrier island of Long Beach is taking steps forward this summer in its Hurricane Sandy recovery. Churches, beaches, and the boardwalk have all slowly reopened. But not it’s only hospital.
In addition to the physical devastation of superstorm Sandy, communications were disabled for many and the Federal Communications Commission is now holding hearings to try and prevent those failures in the future.

Long Beach was a city making progress Friday, but some parts were so completely devastated, many of the residents said they couldn’t see their way out their despair.
