    Christmas Tree Emerges From Hurricane Sandy Wreckage

    Residents of Union Beach, New Jersey are leaving handmade ornaments and gifts under the tree.

    Union Beach was devastated by Hurricane Sandy, with over 1,000 homes flooded and 200 left uninhabitable.

    But the "Tree of Hope," an artificial tree which was pulled from storm wreckage by a local resident, has recently risen.

    Town residents have rallied to decorate the tree.

    They leave handmade ornaments and gifts for those who need them.
