Although the apartment now has power, some walls remain wet and paint is beginning to peel from flood damage while parents say the children have become sick. Hundreds of other Ocean Bay residents remain without heat or electricity eleven days after Superstorm Sandy struck. 53 New York City public housing buildings remain without power and 113 public housing buildings still don’t have heat in the wake of the storm.
