something smells fishy about this story.

Less is best. Less Botox would be best. Gosh. I feel bad.

Feeling bad today, eh ? Here's an idea that always worked for my Dad when we were young in Irealnd. He'd take a fairly large glass and half fill it with the REAL 'Mountain Dew' from his still, put in a few ounces of sugar and some boiling water and honest to god, it cured all his ailments and he's get out his boat within the hour and row out into the Atlantic and come back with boatload of salmon. Sometime a natural remedy like sweet whiskey punch is far better than the concoctions one gets at the Pharmacy.

When something like "Sandy" happens, it's probably not as unusual as you think (rather HP thinks) that an entire structure would disappear. Obviously it was bulldozed. This story is more about finding out what happened to the house for insurance purposes as opposed to a house that "mysteriously disappeared" as Huffington Post likes to mislead its readers into thinking. LOL

The real issue isn't whether or not the house was structraily sound, but did the building inspectors tag in to be unlivable, were the owners notified and if not why and what happened to their belongings, tossed away, put in storage or what.

Having lived in the Los Angeles area for many years, going through fires, floods and earthquakes, I have seen many homes "red tagged", none of them were done overnight, owners were allowed to recover their belongings if deemed safe enough to do so before the tear down.

Hey it's the DOT at work. How the Earth was made. Billions of years ago most of the Earth was water and was formed by volcanoes. Even though we love to live so close to the ocean that it's napping at our door step. The ocean will reclaim the land one day. What happened before Will happen again. The Ice caps have been melting and re-freezing for millions of years. It comes in cycles.

Lol!!! Don't you hate not being able to "undo" a post? I've had some rant going at 5 am and accidentally hit enter or post before. It takes a nanosecond to do but it "lives" forever! Ahhh!

In plantation days, Sugar Cane was grown in Florida as far north as Bullow Plantation, north of Ormond Beach in Volusia Countty. Remains of the old sugar mill are there as a park and museum. Now Sugar Cane will not grow north of Lake Okechobee.

Citrus used to grow as far north as Lake County Florida covering land as far as the eye could see. The Citrus Tower in Claremont Florida was in the middle of huge orange groves. Since the cooler temperatures after the 1980s, Citrus growers retreated south to Lake Wales in Polk County.

I think in true global warming we should be able to grow citrus and sugar cane in South Carolina.

These "parents" should be put to death in the same way they killed that child. If they do not get the death penalty, they should at least be sterilized so they can NEVER AGAIN have any children, nor should they be allowed around any children.

Exactly! Didn't he receive any warnings ahead of time so that he could remove his personal belongings?

Unforgiving!

I agree no warning just take his belongings and trash them. The government at work.

Wait a minute... We shouldn't rebuild the Jersey Shore, but it is imperative we rebuild New Orleans, an area that gets hit with major storms 10x more often than New Jersey ever does?

New Orleans is a major port city to the United States. We open New Orleans for commerce. We keep New York and New Jersey open for the same reasons. Commerce.

Yes, I was surprised at what was said in the article as well.

You know, my husband was building homes with Habitat for Humanity at 30 Rock for people who lost their houses during Katrina. He volunteered his time and skills to do this along with numerous others who felt moved by the people's plight. However, there doesnt' seem to be the same effort for those in Sandy's path. Leaves one to wonder why as there are people still without homes and places to live and are living in their abandoned houses. Double standard?

No other group will help the white person....the white person helps everyone, but when we need help, its up to ourselves....we are not catered to like the minority group babies .....and thats not even physically like building a house,,,economically our high taxes dont even go back to its people....they go to support every other state

Sure seems like it, from the article at least.

I can see the reason for demolishing the house, but I wouldn't be surprised if the crew, or officials, involved didn't help themselves to the contents first. Or am I being too cynical?

Is it bad that, before watching the video, I couldn't help but think that his house was on an Indian burial ground and that a Quaker oats-looking guy was behind the disappearance?

Don;t forget the sugar daddies to the repuckian party who always have their hands out for more tax giveaways and plain old handouts.

One can understand the safety issues which necessitated removing Maria's house. But not to salvage as much of his personal belongings as possible is unconscionable. Sheer callousness.
