Today marks the first anniversary of the day Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast.

The storm made landfall near Brigantine, NJ and destroyed thousands of homes, knocked out power to millions, and caused billions of dollars in damage. More than 150 people were killed in the storm.

One year later, reconstruction projects are still underway. Lawmakers in New Jersey have been trying to increase the flow of money to people who still need it.

NJ Governor Chris Christie will visit eight locations throughout the state on today's anniversary.
