Is this your family? Photos washed to sea by Sandy find a home on Facebook
Hurricane Sandy’s damage to the East Coast of the United States is now estimated at over $70 billion dollars. Thousands of people lost their homes in the worst affected areas. One of those harder hit areas is Union Beach, New Jersey. A neighborhood group, lead by Jeannette Van Houton and Mary Danielson, has organized with one goal: to scour the beaches in their local areas, rescuing photos which have washed ashore. The group then scans the photos in the hopes of eventually finding their owners.
