Videoguys by Gary Bettan

Last week Long Island was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. Most of our staff lost power in their homes. Thankfully the damages were minimal, but here we are over a week later and still many of us are without power or heat. Just when you think things can't get worse... A Nor'Easter hits Long Island.
