Stony Point Community Struggles Years After Hurricane Damage

STONY POINT, N.Y. -- Ba Mar, a privately owned mobile-home park with roughly 140 trailers adjacent to Cedar Pond Brook, is facing an uncertain future as residents still try to recover from the damage of Superstorm Sandy in 2012, according to lohud.com.

Many residents have made repairs and rebuilt but just how they can remain living in a 100-year flood plain is in limbo and won't be resolved until November or later, said New York Rising officials, the agency created in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, according to lohud.com.

The Mobile Home Community Resiliency program, which was created after calls from Ba Mar residents, will conduct an engineering and planning study to determine solutions for the residents other than razing the homes, according to lohud.com.
