NJ woman says insurer denied storm damage claim

The nor?easter that recently hit New Jersey caused a Beachwood homeowner?s basement wall to collapse.

Judi Defeo says that she filed an insurance claim and was denied. The house now stands on three walls, and its stability is considered questionable. The basement is exposed to the elements, and the wall is reduced to a pile of rubble with mud pouring in.

The heat and water have also been turned off forcing Defeo and her two sons to live with family. News 12 New Jersey has reached out to Defeo?s insurance company, but has not received a response.
