October 29 marks a full year since Hurricane Sandy battered Long Island, blowing through the tri-state area with brutal wind gusts and a devastating storm surge, the likes of which had not been seen in almost 100 years.

Lindenhurst was on the receiving end of one of the deepest storm surges on Long Island, facing depths at the storm's peak between four to eight feet of rushing sea water.

The waters changed the way Lindenhurst was following the storm, bringing the community closer than ever before and setting an example that much of Long Island followed in the days, weeks and months after the storm.

Above, we have been able to show the storm's impact in a short before and after gallery now one year removed from Sandy. While many photos were taken in the aftermath of the storm, many of the scenes they displayed were tough to find.

If you would like to take a peek back at the storm's wrath on Lindenhurst, view these galleries taken by former editor Barbara Capella Loehr and readers from throughout our community who braved the gale to show what was happening to their community.
