Wow, had some great summers at the beach in Strathmere. Hope something can be done to preserve the beach town, but nature has a way of doing whatever it wants.

These people have multi-million dollar homes and want help? It is to bad mother nature does not accept cash. What did you expect when you bought an oceanfront property? The oceans were here before we were and they will be here when we are gone. Respect powers you can't control and deal with the consequences of you actions.

"Ocean Threatens To Swallow Jersey Shore Community"

Wonder what Jersey Shore would taste like...
Would probably make the ocean puke it right back out. So, no problem.

The ocean should swallow their homes out of sheer stupidity of those people for building and buying on top of the ocean. I vote for Mother Nature.

The Atlantic Oceans swallows, does that mean the Pacific Ocean spits???
Hell, I guess being lost at sea isnt so bad afterall...

These people knew what they were up against when they bought their homes. The builders and realtors are also responsible for the mess. The homes on the ocean here are not like the beachfront homes in California. There the homes are either high above the beach or five hundred feet away from the surf. In New Jersey the homes are too close to the surf.

Maybe they should never had built those house so close to the raging ocean. The township and the developer should buy the house back full price and return the ground to a natural buffer. this is a classic example of over development.

Back in July this homeowners main concern was that i parked to close to her driveway. Doesn't matter now does it?

People who build homes on ocean fronts are complete morons. People in California are even bigger morons for building homes in canyons that burn them down every year, and the people who build homes subject to land slides and mud slides are even more stupid.Insurance companies should refuse to insure these properties because the dopes will rebuild them in the same areas, with the same results.
