SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Linda Ferraro hasn't been able to rebuild her Seaside Heights home since Sandy struck.

She says her house was badly damaged by Sandy, and has little idea about how to navigate help from volunteers she's relying on as she waits for aid.

"I don't know what else to do," she says. "I don't know who else to call, who else to write to. I don't know who else to reach out to."

The homes around her are abandoned, and she fears that new sandbars created by Sandy may mean new flood dangers.

Ferraro is hoping grants and emergency aid will help her start to rebuild, but admits she'll take aid from anyone as long as the help comes soon.
