All things recovery here. Please use the comments to share information with your neighbors and give a vivid picture of what is going on in different parts of town


A week after Hurricane Sandy, Orange and Rockland Utilities reports that 40 percent of customers are still without power as of Sunday. 

Hurricane Sandy has claimed four lives in the Lower Hudson Valley.

A tree crashed through a home in Pearl River at about 6 p.m. Monday, killing a 51-year-old manand placing his family in the hospital.

In North Salem, a tree came down Monday evening, killing two middle school-aged boys.

A motorist on the Sprain Brook Parkway in Greenburgh died due to storm conditions Monday evening, as well, according to state police.

The storm—an amalgam of several foul weather patterns—brought its worst rains and winds through the region between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. Monday.

The National Hurricane Center was no longer labeling Sandy a hurricane as of 7 p.m. Monday, as it teetered on the edge of the northeast coastline—but the squall still held amazing power.
