MetroFocus anchor  Rafael Pi Roman reports on the devastation in the section of Queens known as the Rockaways. Homeowners assessed damages and looked to the future without any idea when help will come. Flooding damaged one family’s basement floor, destroying property but also washing away years of memories.
