HOBOKEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Local destruction after Superstorm Sandy prompted a team of student architects and engineers to come up with a new plan for coastal communities that are at risk during natural events.
CBS2’s Meg Baker toured one of the storm-resistant homes. It is a house built to last – armored against extreme weather – courtesy of students from the Stevens Institute of Technology.
“When Sandy hit Hoboken … at Stevens, we really wanted to respond,” said faculty adviser John Nastasi.
