 Superstorm Sandy impacted many who are trying to get back to a new sense of “normal.”  However, a safety fallback that many counted on has become, in some cases, a cause of depression and anger.

On Friday Dec. 5, the Federal Emergency Management Agency reversed course and agreed to a series of flood-insurance reforms that are designed to mitigate those actions of some of the insurers.
