Mister and Mrs Dresch lived in their home in Tottenville, Staten Island, for about 30 years before Super Storm Sandy took it out with them in it. They had weathered several storms, but last time they evacuated, returned to find the home looted. This time they stayed.
The local utility left this message on a power pole where there house once stood:
WE AT VZ ARE SORRY 4 YOUR LOSS NOV 5 2012
