In 1962 my husband and I were stationed in Anchorage, Alaska with the Army. We heard on the TV about the damage in Brigantine. We called home and my mother said it was just a nor’easter and they were OK. They lived on 21st
Street and there wasn’t any water in their basement. My father worked for the Water Department and had to tour the island every morning. He came home and told my mother that I, living 5000 miles away knew more about what happened the night before than they did and that the North end of the island was distroyed.
