(CBS Local) Less than a week after superstorm Sandy tore through New York, the city and surrounding communities are starting to rebuild. But tales of tragedy continue to flood the newswire. The latest involves Cyndi Lauper, whose uncle joined the growing list of Sandy victims.

Spinner reports that 90-year-old George Stathis was found dead in his Queens, NY home while Lauper was in Chicago.

"He was old. He didn't want to leave his house," Lauper says. "I called and said [to relatives], 'Why did you guys leave him,' and they just didn't think it was going to get that bad." more on this story
