HV residents continue to repair Irene's damage 1 year later

ELMSFORD - It's been exactly one year since Hurricane Irene barreled through the Hudson Valley, leaving behind millions of dollars in damage, and some homeowners are still struggling to get back on their feet. Babbit Court in Elmsford is among the hard-hit areas that are still recovering from the storm. The neighborhood was flooded with water from the nearby Saw Mill River, and some residents had to be rescued by boats. Today, there are still Dumpsters outside some Babbit Court residences, where homeowners continue to repair the massive damage caused by the storm. Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner says the federal government promised financial help after Irene, but he says officials haven't come through yet.Hudson Valley does not fondly remember IreneHudson Valley recalls Hurricane Irene's damage
