Today marks 10 years since Superstorm Sandy devasted the region, leaving 44 New York City resident dead in its wake.
News 12’s Samantha Chaney is in City Island, which was one of the most devastated districts in the Bronx.
Ahead of today's anniversary, Gov. Kathy Hochul put in place plans to protect New Yorkers from the next disaster. On Friday, she announced a new statewide Office of Resilient Homes and Communities that will work with those most vulnerable to disasters before and after they occur.
Bronx Councilmember Marjorie Valesquez says she is committed to doing everything in her power to ensure the next natural disaster doesn't destroy the coastal district.

Valesquez says she will be working with state agencies to address infrastructure issues that could prevent future flooding and making sure the Bronx isn't left “out of sight and out of mind.”
