Family stands in front of destroyed home
Union Beach, N.J., July 30, 2013 -- The Sochaki family stand at the empty lot where their home stood before losing it to Hurricane Sandy's flood waters. The family sheltered in their mother-in-law's house, behind the couple. This home had been fortified with poured concrete walls and other strengthening features that allowed the home to emerge from Sandy almost unscathed. - Location: Union Beach, NJ
