There’s no doubt that the effects of Superstorm Sandy have been devastating.
People have lost their businesses, homes and many are still stranded. The massive storm has wiped out roads, bridges and mass transit systems in the hardest hit areas as well.
So far, Sandy has killed 122 people -- 67 in the Caribbean, 54 in the United States and one in Canada. Nearly half of the deaths in the U.S. were reported in New York.
However, residents in the battered Northeast are overcoming their losses and inconveniences with great heart and willpower.
On Wednesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew asked Kathleen Koch, author of “Rising from Katrina,” what advice she could offer the victims of the vicious storm. Hear her response in the video player above.
