One year ago today, millions of residents on the East Coast emerged from a night of record winds and torrential rain to find their neighborhoods and communities transformed.

Hurricane Sandy devastated the Eastern Seaboard, leaving at least 117 dead, thousands homeless and an estimated $65 billion in damage. 

President Barack Obama appointed Shaun Donovan, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, to lead the federal response to Sandy. Secretary Donovan examines Sandy's impact, and discusses the state of the recovery effort one year later.
