I know for a fact that some homes in Seaside Hts and Park were not damages at all.... and these people displaced will suffer day after day because the utilities are not available for their use.They will be held hostage to our government and its slow boat to china.... A lot of people hurting and waiting.

Checked our house at Seaside Park Monday. Driving down Central, it looks like they are doing a great job cleaning up. Neighbors are helping neighbors with dragging debris to the curb. Police are helpful and polite, and the Red Cross volunteers are passing out water and, I think, snacks. The streets have been cleared and the water company is draining pipes and shutting off water. I understand there will be inspectors from the electric company evaluating each home and if deemed unsafe, the meter will be removed. Heading home on RT 72, we passed convoys of power trucks from southern states heading for the coast. I still think home owners should have had the opportunity to check their homes earlier or given an honest, detailed reason for being denied access as there were no sinkholes as rumored.
By the way, our house was not damaged, except for some top layer roofing shingles, as it was built high off the ground. Even though we are in our 70s, we will be returning to give neighbors who weren't as lucky, a hand in cleaning up.

Agreed. There's no logical reason to keep the homeowners taxpayer out!

My cottage got 2 foot of water and needs to be demoed. The problem is I work and can't make it down by 3pm when we have to be off island. Any idea when that will change and are contractors allowed to go in and work?

Billy, I am so sorry to hear about your property. We got in touch with the Police and, at this time, contractors must be accompanied by a home owner. Before entering Seaside Park, a contractor must apply for a permit. This is a precaution to protect Seaside from looters and unqualified contractors as have shown up in other devastated areas. I believe local officials are doing their best to accommodate the needs of residents but they are also restricted by limitations set by the State, from what I understand. Also, the water has been turned off at each property and will not be turned on again without permission from the owner.
