Bob Holub Jones Beach, D3

from Nigel Hargreaves: talked to Bob 10PM Tuesday night (30th)
He & Nancy OK - bottom half of home severely damaged; had several pumps in basement Sunday pumping out water but couldn\'t stay ahead of the incoming surge; when water level reached air vent level Bob decided it was time to abandon his efforts & they left; got back into house Tuesday - water had receded from around house; he restarted pumps using generators, by Tuesday evening had lowered level a couple of feet; continuing to pump on Wednesday; they are living in house, no electricity, using paraffin lanterns
