Faces of Sandy: Barbara Schaffer

Barbara Schaffer, 47, is still displaced from her Lindenhurst home, which she had purchased only three years ago. Now, living with relatives in Lindenhurst, she spends most of her day fighting with insurance companies and trying to find the money to raise her home. Aside from the many physical possessions she lost during the storm, she said Sandy took away her "sense of security." Videojournalist: Tara Conry (Sept. 28, 2013)
