Tonight, some residents of New Jersey's barrier islands are seeing for the first time what is left of their homes.
CNN's Michael Holmes is in Toms River, New Jersey and has the story.
Erin Burnett also spoke to a couple whose home was hit by Hurricane Irene last year and they rebuilt. Now their home is destroyed again. Joe and Ruth Albanese come OutFront.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) explains to Erin Burnett why he is critical of FEMA and why he supports local and private organizations.
"Superstorm" Sandy destroyed many homes and property in all of the boroughs of New York City. The borough of Staten Island is now beginning to garner attention on the amount of devastation it faced after the storm.
Sandy claimed more than a dozen lives, left hundreds of families homeless and, as of Thursday, 83,000 customers without power. Two days after Sandy hit Staten Island, Erin Burnett spoke to Congressman Michael Grimm (R-NY) about the aftermath.
"It's a surreal scene to see very large boats in the middle of your block." Grimm said, "Homes being literally ripped right out of the foundation. There's nothing, they look like lots with debris all over them."
Erin Burnett spoke with Congressman Grimm in Staten Island Thursday and toured the storm damage left by "Superstorm" Sandy.
