Mlklecha, Home Buyer in Ocean Grove, NJ

I was looking at some houses for sale on Lake Street (listed as lakefront). Did this area have water damage after hurricane Sandy last Fall?

No the homes along Wesley lake in Ocean Grove did well during the hurricane. All of the homes along the lake are elevated and also the lake wall held. The area that was affected was the south end of Ocean Grove when the tide came in the storm surge caused the lake to rise far above ground level mainly due to the lower elevation on that side. Most of the flooding was in basements.

There was no water damage to homes fronting Wesley Lake (lake ave) - across from Asbury Park. the lake actually went down and the homes are about 18 feet above the lake.
