Faces of Sandy: Dina Materia

While cleaning out her flooded Massapequa home in the wake of Sandy, Dina Materia, 38, found an item that brought her solace at time she needed it most -- a keychain with the "Serenity Prayer." A year later, Materia's neighborhood is still in the process of recovering and she now has a life jacket for every member of her family inside her house. Videojournalist: Tara Conry (Sept. 28, 2013)
