UNION BEACH, N.J.
Some families at the Jersey shore still can't go home nearly a year after Superstorm Sandy.
A week later, the money he had sought came through.
Simone and Ken Dannecker fixed their flooded home themselves.
Now, with the work all but done, they are all but bankrupt — and still can't afford to elevate the house they fought so hard to stay in.
