In this Monday, Dec. 3, 2012 photo, Rachael Alhadad talks with her sons, Ayman Alhadad, 15, left, and Ameer Alhadad, 14, center, as they return home from school at their house in the Midland Beach section of Staten Island, New York. The stress of the past few weeks has taken its toll on the two, who lost all of their school books and supplies in the flooding from Superstorm Sandy on Oct. 29, 2012. "They just got their report cards, and they're not doing very good at all," Rachael said. "It's hard to study. Because then you gotta think about, 'Oh no, I gotta go home to the same thing again.'"
