A year has come and gone, but Sandy is still as much a story today as it was yesterday in New Jersey.
Some media are still posting stories about one-year demarcation events yesterday. Others are questioning why and whether or not we have or haven’t recovered. Some stories wrapped both the anniversary and questions about why the recovery is taking so long in one story (see Patch’s “Dunk the FEMA rep” story).
NJTV devoted its entire broadcast last night to the anniversary, with stories on inland towns like Moonachie, a personal tale from a Shore town (Toms River), the governor’s visits to a Sandy-impacted sites, and more.
