Bronx spared from the worst damage caused by Hurricane Irene

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

Residents say that most people in the area did not lose power. Some said they were expecting the storm to be much worse than it actually was.

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.
