This week marks the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.

The storm caused devastation to many in New Jersey. The recovery efforts have been ongoing, but things are still far from back to normal.
Hurricane Sandy caused more than $50 billion in damages and killed over 100 people.

The American Red Cross had 1,700 volunteers dispatched from across the country. One volunteer was a Wiregrass man.

“I love helping people. If you are doing something and it doesn’t help people you should re-evaluate what you are doing. To me it is the best job. It could be the best thing to happen on someone’s worst day,” explained Jack Porter of the Red Cross.

Porter helped with the recovery for nine months. He says he was one of the last volunteers from Red Cross to return to the Wiregrass.
