MOONACHIE - Homeowners in sections of Moonachie and Little Ferry are still struggling to make repairs and renovations.

Six months later, many residents are living in their damaged homes despite the ongoing construction. From the outside, many homes appear to be back to normal, but homeowners now face new problems.

Many homes are still without essentials like working kitchens. Sections of homes and furnishings that residents believed would dry out are now covered in black mold. Ocean water has also eaten away at electrical systems, creating even more complications.

Volunteers continue to help out with the renovations. The group "Rebuilding Together" will rebuild three houses each month in Little Ferry and Moonachie.
