Home Collapses on Belmar Boulevard


A home in the process of being raised after seeing widespread Hurricane Sandy flooding has collapsed.

The Belmar Boulevard home’s roof now sits asunder and its walls flattened after the home collapsed earlier this week. The house is on the south side of Route 35 near the Shark River Harbor in Wall Township.

The ranch home was one of the first in the neighborhood to be raised. The street currently lies in a FEMA map flood zones affecting residents around the Shark River from Route 35 an reaching westward to Marconi Road. Property will be unable to receive flood insurance, or be unable to afford the premiums, unless they raise their homes above flood levels, according to newly adopted flood maps drawn by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
