ORTLEY BEACH - Residents in Ortley Beach are still dealing with the wake of Superstorm Sandy, nearly three years after it tore through the East Coast.

Residents marched the streets Saturday demanding action from the state in reconstructing dunes to help protect them from future storms.  

Many of them expressed frustration with what they call the state's limited contributions to the recovery. 

They say they've put their own money into rebuilding their homes, but without dunes, they're left defenseless.

This coming October will mark three years since the storm.
