Tom and Vera Jones’s re-built oceanfront home sits
atop a reinforced dune at
the FEMA-required 17 feet
above sea level. A porch on
each level provides ocean
views. The flags on the
lower porch are a nod to
the grandkids’ colleges.
After a devastating blow from Superstorm Sandy,
a Bay Head family rebuilds—stronger, safer and smarter.
