Hurricane Sandy struck the eastern seaboard more than a week ago leaving a path of destruction in its wake. But while the lights may be back on for most of Connecticut, the impact of this powerful storm is still being felt by thousands, particularly those who lost their homes and their livelihoods as a result of Sandy. Today AARP Connecticut announced that workers who lost their jobs as a result of Hurricane Sandy -- and who aren't eligible for regular state unemployment insurance, such as the self-employed -- may be eligible for Disaster Unemployment Assistance, a federal program that provides up to 26 weeks of jobless aid.
