KEANSBURG - Residents of Keansburg are still trying to pick up the pieces after Sandy struck months ago. Even though Tropical Storm Andrea isn't nearly as strong, hurricane season has officially begun and residents are getting ready.

Many homeowners have had a chance to rebuild, but there is still much work to be done. The forecast is calling for several inches of rain, something residents are taking very seriously.
