People walk on a street littered with debris after Hurricane Sandy hit Santiago de Cuba October 26, 2012. A year after Hurricane Sandy left Santiago de Cuba in shambles, the streets are clear and power, communications and water are back to normal, but residents of Cuba's second city are still struggling with the aftermath of the mighty storm. Sandy, carrying 124-mph (200-km) winds, caught the city by surprise on the morning of October 25, 2012, damaging half the housing stock and most public buildings, killing 11 residents and laying waste to nearby crops and fruit orchards. The storm later devastated parts of the U.S. East Coast. Picture taken October 26, 2012. REUTERS/Desmond Boylan (CUBA - Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT)
