In the year since Sandy, affected neighborhoods have started to rebuild, but also prepare for their response to the next storm.  Jaime Jordan, one of the founders of Rockaway Help, talks about the work she and her neighbors are doing in the Rockaways to build up social infrastructure as a key part of disaster response.

FYI
The barrier islands ARE the protection for the land. They need protecting from devolopement
