MANASQUAN - Researchers at Rutgers University are warning that residents may not be elevating their homes enough in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
Scientists say residents should be raising their homes up to 2 feet more than current FEMA maps require.
They say climate change is likely to increase the frequency of stronger storms, adding that warmer ocean temperatures will fuel more storms later in the season.

Experts say they believe the sea level will rise up to 3.5 feet by the end of the century. If this happens, storms less powerful than Sandy may cause similar damage.
