“I KNEW WE WERE ALL DEAD!"

That’s what Linda Altieri said she was thinking while she and her grown son Brian were trapped for more than two hours in their car, water from Hurricane Sandy’s destructive surge creeping through the floorboards and steadily rising until the two had to tilt their heads back to gasp breaths from an ever-shrinking pocket of air near the roof...

The hurricane dubbed “Frankenstorm” not only spawned neighborhood-leveling floods and tree-toppling winds but also countless stories of survival as residents along the 1,000-mile swath of the behemoth maelstrom battled the elemental forces to protect their properties and loved ones!
