SOUNDVIEW - While many areas across the East Coast suffered the wrath of Hurricane Irene, in Soundview, things have basically returned to normal.

A few signs remain of the storm preparations, including sandbags that had been placed in front of some businesses to prevent flooding that never materialized.
