Six months ago Hurricane Sandy slammed into New Jersey, knocking out power, cable and internet service to more than two-thirds of the more than 8,000 surveyed by Consumer Reports in the tri-state area.

And while the public sees boardwalks being rebuilt, the devastation just blocks away remains.

(Reynolds) “Nearly half of all of the claims that have been for insurance that were $40,000 or more were still pending in March.”

More than half of all homeowners in the survey reported property damage.
