SEASIDE PARK, N.J.–News helicopters aren’t hovering over Superstorm Sandy–wrecked coastlines anymore, but many businesses and homes are still pumping out seawater and trying to recover power a month after the record-breaking storm. Already the damage in New York alone is more extensive than the damage from Hurricane Katrina: Sandy destroyed 305,000 homes there, a preliminary number, while Katrina destroyed 214,700 in Louisiana.
