This is the time we should all get together..it s time for the Banks to bail us out...there should be a hold on Mortgage payments for 6 months

Does anyone know the condition of Green Acres Nursing Home in Toms River?
N. Duncan November 01, 2012 at 02:32 PM
I'd like to thank everyone who responded to my Holiday City post. All of us, here in Savannah, were very relieved to hear that Great-grandma was not going to have to synchronize swim her way down St. Thomas Dr. Having endured 5 Florida hurricanes myself, I absolutely understand what no electricity is about. Its daunting to say the least but it is survivable, so just hang in there guys, the worst is over with.

I have tears in my eyes looking at this devasation. Beautiful Toms River, Seaside and the surrounding areas and most importantly the wonderful people I have known my whole life who now have to put back together their homes and worlds. As I have said before, it is now more than ever that I wish I was there to help. This is unspeakable.
lynn b November 01, 2012 at 03:42 PM
Has Green Acres Manor (Nursing Home) located at 1931 Lakewood Rd, Toms River, 08755, been evacuated or flooded? Please respond if anyone is familiar with the current situation there. Thank you in advance for your help!

I was finally able to get a status of the South Shore Dr neighborhood. Water has receeded, clean up has begun. Most vehicles in the neighborhood were underwater but a few neighbors have vehicles and are helping each other out. Most houses lost the first floor. One random cul-de-sac has power but none of the others do. Its advised that anything removed from a house be kept on property till an insurance adjuster can see it. All in all it sounds like property loss only but will be a few days before power will be restored. Hope that helps anyone needing info on that area.
