Lavallette residents got the green light to move back home today, six weeks after Sandy forced them out.

Though officially allowed to return to their homes, many residents say they are still a long way from moving back in.

The town requires proof that gas, water and electric lines are fully repaired, up to code and that all utilities are up and running in each home.

Still, residents like Judy Singer say they’re lucky.

"I didn't lose my life, I didn't lose my kids, I didn't lose my grandchildren,” Singer says.
