Star Ledger: Widespread Mold is Latest Obstacle for Sandy Recovery
Dan Ivers | Star Ledger
MOONACHIE — For months, Regina Coyle and Kimberly Chastain have seen hundreds of lower Bergen County residents still struggling with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Some are new faces, but countless others are still dealing with problems that have lingered — or in some cases failed to surface until recently.
"We find people who haven't come out for help every day," Chastain, the pastor at Moonachie's First Presbyterian Church, said.
The tidal surge that arrived with Sandy devastated the low-lying Bergen County communities of Little Ferry and Moonachie, flooding more than half of homes and sending many residents on an unexpected search for long-term shelter.
Six months later, however, many of them have returned to damaged dwellings, and even those who stayed are learning that the storm's impact is far from over.
