Hi, Great video and thread. My family grew up in Atlantic City, and many still live there. My aunt has a house on Dolphin Drive, right across from the beach. Any photos of that block? Thanks again for the great service you have done.
Hurricane Sandy at Margate, New Jersey. Pictures/Video - Page 7
I'm at 4 north Coolidge and I have a water line on my house that is about 4' high so I imagine the entire town got 3-4' of standing water, ill go out in a bit and check some properties if you guys aren't coming down today.

Quick update to my previous post. My brother discovered today that water had gotten into the ductwork that runs through his crawl space. He has forced air heat and air conditioning. The water had risen to his porch but he never considered what had happened under his house. He smelled the water when the heat came on.
I am suggesting those of you who have ducts in crawl spaces or anything else that is under the house or other unseen area that you check these things out to make sure you don't have stagnant water that could turn to mold or mildew.
Also if you have plastic over the soil in your crawl space, or a solid surface (less likely) you want to make sure you get rid of that water too.
Standing water will, over time, turn to mildew or mold which can have respiratory health implications.
Most houses will have sandy soil and that soil should drain just fine.
Best to take a peek into your crawl space to be sure.
Also, FYI, no toll at the Margate bridge until 6 PM tomorrow (Saturday) night.
I can't believe those jerks - Margate bridge, were collecting tools all week, I left right before the storm and there were a hundred cars backed up to the toll, God forbid they make it free, any way for them to make a buck(damn thing has paid for itself 100x over) I cant believe they are actually allowing no toll now, might big of them
Thanks for the reply. My cousin that sent me the link said that also, but since I have not been down there for a while I may not have recognized it. My aunt is at the end by the circle, so I may not have recognized the houses at the beginning of the block. I will look at the video again more closely to see if I can spot her house.
And again, thanks for the good work you are doing.
