FREEPORT - State leaders say hundreds of Hurricane Sandy victims are still trying to get their lives back to normal after the storm.

Leaders say insurance companies are part of the problem for the delay in funding and are giving inadequate figures for restoring homes. 

A Senate task force that was recently formed to help develop short and long term plans to address the challenges from the storm met today. 

The group, including Senate majority leader Dean Skelos, toured Freeport and assessed its damage.
