Power was restored Nov. 6, at the Redfern Housing Complex in Far Rockaway, N.Y. for residents in the complex who had been without power since Hurricane Sandy devastated the northeast a week prior. A joint effort by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, other branch components and federal and state partners working through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), is restoring power in Rockaway and other hard-hit areas throughout New York and New Jersey.
