Stories of Home: Highlands, New Jersey
From our new video series: Suzanne and Frank Thomas live in the same house Frank grew up in. Superstorm Sandy threatened to keep them out forever
Suzanne and Frank Thomas live in Highlands, New Jersey, once known as the "Gateway to the Jersey Shore," in the same house where Frank grew up. On October 29, 2012, the couple evacuated to higher ground for Superstorm Sandy, the worst hurricane/nor'easter combination they'd ever seen in the area, which flooded their small town and most of the houses in it. They had no idea what they would find when they came home.
