MONROE TOWNSHIP - Homeowners in Middlesex County are at a breaking point, hoping that someone will help them after 25 days of being homeless.

Homes on at least three streets in Monroe Township are so damaged because of floods that homeowners can't live in them until they are repaired. Many qualify for disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), but the $30,000 cap won't fix all of the problems.

News 12 New Jersey spoke to residents who say their homes are beyond repair. One homeowner said she was afraid to let anyone inside her home because she felt it was unsafe.

Monroe Mayor Richard Pucci was not available for interview, but the town engineer said he understands the frustration. He says the town is looking to create a new program to buy the severely damaged homes with township open space money.
