SEA BRIGHT - A Sea Bright family is raising their Sandy-damaged home to help protect it from future flooding.
A construction crew from Pennsylvania is lifting the Marelli's home by 12 feet.
Hank Marelli says his father is helping to cover the $14,000 cost so they won't have to wait for insurance to kick in. The final product is expected to be complete Wednesday.
