Douglas Ljungkvist. Ocean Beach.

Ocean Beach is a wonderful series from photographer Douglas Ljungvist documenting the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. What I particularly like is that these images are bright and airy, not dark and depressing with stormy skies and a feeling of impending doom. After all, it is a beach community and something one would associate with sunshine and bright shadow-less days.  I am not really sure if this was the intention of the photographer and could be barking up the wrong tree here, but to be honest I would rather not know. It all works very well and still leaves you wanting to see more.
Have a look here.
