Jersey Shore Storm Survivors Face Uncertain Future

Society & Culture  (tags: society, safety, Hurricane sandy victims, New Jersey )

The barrier islands off the coast of New Jersey were hit hard by Superstorm Sandy, and for the moment, most residents are banned from living in their homes because the area is far too damaged.

A second nasty storm is blowing in tonight or tomorrow, I do hope those in need have food and shelter. Most shelters in the Northeast are allowing for pets, but they still need food.

Free Clicks at www. - all clicks for as long as needed are going to feed pets in need in storm damaged areas.

It will be interesting now to see if the President and FEMA will be as supportive of storm victims now that the election is over.

Let's petition Mother Nature for those storms to stop happening. Mother Nature is a jerk.

We need a genius to reassess the rebuilding in areas that will continue to be more vulnerable to the effects of global warming - and insurance companies that will provide coverage to those same areas! It's a "reaping" - unfortunately!!
Thanks for posting Cal - and your link as well Kit!

Some factual information from one who lost his home. Christie and Obama can walk around the Jersey shore, bemoaning the devastation they saw. They talk about rebuilding - half a lie. This administration supported Bush's removal of FEMA coverage for anyone who did not live in their house year round. If you house was above sea level, you could not get flood insurance.
So in other words, the political opt these men took at our expense knew they were lying. Thousands of people lost their vacation/retirement home, never to see them again. These men know this, but they were too busy being politicians .

My house is still there and I have flood vents and the house up. No damage on my house. Mother Nature is very much to complain about.
