Hundreds of New York City police officers and firefighters who have spent the past few weeks helping a storm-battered city get back on its feet are also dealing with personal losses related to the floods. The NYPD and FDNY say an estimated 1,700 members of their departments had homes, vehicles or other property severely damaged or lost when Sandy came ashore. (AP Photo/Craig Ruttle)
