Hurricane Sandy was a massive super storm that unleashed high winds and large-scale flooding in New York and New Jersey three years ago. Hurricanes are predicted to become stronger each year.
Refugees are people who had to leave their homes because of war or other violence, environmental disasters or a bad economy that leaves them unable to get jobs or make enough money.
Before FEMA took its first steps after Superstorm Sandy, local community groups had sprung to action, providing crucial emergency relief to residents in New York and New Jersey.
