5 years after Superstorm Sandy, the lessons haven’t sunk in

Dune plantings line the beach in the Belle Harbor neighborhood of the Rockaways in the Queens borough of New York on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017. Nearly five years ago Superstorm Sandy inundated the area, toppling most beachfront houses. Since then some residents have rebuilt their homes, protected by a high sand berm along the beach. Dune plantings line the berm. It is hoped these measures and a beach extension project will protect the area from the damage of future hurricanes. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
