  10. Aid

  11. Tarp Roof Rebuilding Begins

  12. From this point until today: -Some people struggle, receiving no help -Many repair their homes and get right back on their feet -A large number of people never return -Most things, through a slow and steady process, are back to pre-storm conditions today -Some neighborhoods are still in dire need of one last push to help their people out

  13. The dichotomy continues: some people are… Comfortably back in their homes within 6-12 months Still working hard to make progress, even years later

  14. 1 year later: nearly normal

  15. 1 year Later: Nearly Unchanged
