Sandy victims.

Again, this gov. can't do anything right?   These poor people are still waiting for their money. They are paying mortgages, insurance, flood insurance on their homes and they can't live in them.  Something like 800 out of 14,000 have gotten money.

The article is a year old, WHL. Things are much better down there, but the real culprits are the insurance companies. They low-balled offers to everyone and many people caved because they had nowhere to go, and many had to have their houses taken down. There are a million stories at the NY and NJ shores, and very few of them are good.

I only posted that article because I know you would want one. What I have been hearing the last couple of days is not old news. The figures and the lady I mentioned are not from that article.

Sandy Victims In NJ Are Not Doing That Well

Jacking up the houses is a big thing, otherwise they're looking at flood insurance of about $10 thousand a year.

Twenty years ago, I'd have been at "ground zero" on the Jersey shore.

So glad I got the hell out.

I have friends and family still there though and some of them have been going through a government and insurance nightmare.

Yikes, you are lucky you got out. Is it really as bad as they are saying, Anti? The people aren't getting any help?
