A house in a New Jersey shore neighborhood ravaged by Superstorm Sandy slid off its foundation and into a neighborinng home as it was being raised for flood protection. Now both houses will have to be demolished.Dale Leubner, spokesman for the borough engineering office, told that it’s just too dangerous to try to salvage anything. "Their belongings were still inside, but (the) house is coming down with the belongings," Leubner said, "It is too unsafe and unstable to allow anyone inside to get the belongings, I know the owner, I feel really bad for him and his family. It is too unsafe to have anyone walk around."
