Norma Jack and Bobby Richards talk on the steps of her son's home in the Laurelton neighborhood of Queens on Sunday, Aug. 28. Both moved from the Caribbean 30 years ago and reunited while walking down the street after Hurricane Irene. "It's crazy how the storm can bring people together after 30 years," Richards said. They took time to catch up on life while watching crews removing a large tree that fell on a house across the street. "I praise God that we are all ok, but I would like the power to come back on," Jack said.
