Progress inches forward on storm-damaged homes

Crews have finally begun repairs on a Lynbrook apartment building rendered unlivable by the nor'easter earlier this month.

A tree collapsed during the aggressive storm and punctured the building's roof. Tenants say the landlord failed to cover the hole as the storm raged, flooding the building and displacing 18 families.

Nobody has lived in the building since March 13. Power has been restored and 14 families have been given the green light to return home, but mold concerns may prevent them from doing so.
