Faces of Sandy: Tawaun Weber

Tawaun Weber, 33, of Ronkonkoma, was living in Central Islip at the time of the storm. She won't let go of her old Jetta, which she used to shuttle things like shovels and Sheetrock to help clean out homes around Long Island. Even though it doesn't work anymore, it's a reminder of the time that keeps her humble. "It's been my battleship," she said. Videojournalist: Carl Corry (Sept. 25, 2013)
