Faces of Sandy: Dina Materia

advertisement | advertise on newsday

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)
