FILE - In this Nov. 20, 2012 file photo, Marge Gatti stands in front of her home, which was damaged by Superstorm Sandy, in the Midland Beach section of the Staten Island borough of New York. Six months after the storm, Gatti, the matriarch of her family, said “The whole family's separated, and it's terrible, you know?” The flood-soaked place was demolished months ago, and they're waiting for a government buyout. Now the family is scattered across New Jersey, New York and Texas.   (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)
