Sandy survivors recovering in the wreckage

CNN's Erin Burnett reports on survivors recovering from Hurricane Sandy.

Sandy survivors push toward normalcy and search for the missing

Sandy's grim death toll mounted Thursday as survivors struggled to regain a semblance of the normalcy that the storm swept away this week when it struck the Northeast.

The storm was blamed for the deaths of 157 people - at least 88 of them in the United States, two in Canada and 67 in the Caribbean.

The bodies of two children were found Thursday. The boys, ages 2 and 4, had been riding with their mother on Staten Island when the storm surge swamped their SUV, authorities said.

They were found Thursday morning "maybe a block or two from where (their mother) lost them," Borough President James Molinaro said.

Boats were beached on front yards in the Staten Island neighborhood of Great Kills. Several people were missing.
