Rain Delays Demolition of Sandy-Damaged Homes in Jersey Shore Town
NBC 4 New York's Brian Thompson tours the New Jersey town of Mantoloking six months after Sandy. While some parts of the area have begun to recover, many homes have not yet been rebuilt.
Rain has led workers to postpone the demolition of storm-damaged homes in the Jersey shore town that was hit hardest by Sandy
The ground is too soft for trucks to start demolishing the first of 50 storm-wrecked houses in Mantoloking.
It's the second delay for the project. The lack of an air quality monitoring team prevented the tear-down of a house on Tuesday.
All of Mantoloking's 521 homes were either damaged or destroyed by the storm, which cut a new channel from the ocean to the Barnegat Bay.
