UNION BEACH, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Residents of communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy have been waiting for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to tell them how and where they can rebuild.
But New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he’s not waiting anymore.
He’s adopting the advisory maps the agency recently released, which establish tough standards, CBS 2’s Christine Sloan reported Thursday.
Sandy destroyed the first floor of Steve Chandler’s home in Union Beach, forcing him and his family to take refuge upstairs with only a portable heater to stay warm in the bitter cold.
“Four boys, two girls, my mother-in-law and me and my wife,” Chandler said.
