ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. – A family that lost their home in Superstorm Sandy in 2012, is now waiting to see if Hurricane Florence has destroyed their new, in North Carolina.
Jennifer Liebelt (LEE’-band) and her family were rescued from their Union Beach, New Jersey, home with the boat when Sandy destroyed it in 2012. Rather than rebuild, they moved to Wilmington, North Carolina where Hurricane Florence threatened in their new home this week.
She, her family and a cat piled into cars as Florence approached and went to the north, in the hope of squeezing in with relatives in New Jersey. They ended up at Atlantic City Ocean Resort Casino, which is taking in Florence evacuees for free.
Casino-owner Bruce Deifik (DY’-fik) generosity could cost him $250,000 to $ 300,000 in lost revenue.
