Trash is piled up outside the Troy family home in Long Beach, N.Y., Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012, as workers redo the interior after Superstorm Sandy's surge did serious damage there. Donald Denihan, who endured three near-death experiences, is paying for repairs while the Troy family stays in nearby Point Lookout, at the second house of another generous family.
