When their Babylon home was damaged by 2

When their Babylon home was damaged by 2 feet of water after superstorm Sandy, the Albert family, from left to right, Philip, JoAnne and daughter Amanda, 16, decided they didn't want to go through that experience again, so they researched ways to minimize their exposure to risk in the future. Their house is now suspended in the air, waiting to be placed on a new concrete foundation, elevated 8 feet above the flood plain. The family is currently living in a small trailer at the side of the house. (Aug. 29, 2013) (Credit: Newsday / John Paraskevas)
