Encore episodes: Saturday, 8/25 at 4:30am; Sunday, 8/26 at 11:30pm; Tuesday, 9/4 at 10:30pm; Thursday, 9/6 at 4:30am

As the first anniversary of Hurricane Irene approaches, NJTV’s media partner, The Star-Ledger, takes a look at the storm’s long-lasting effect on the residents of the Lost Valley section of Manville Borough, NJ, where the storm dumped record amounts of rainfall on an area long flooding history. With upwards of seven feet of water on the first floor of some homes, residents have to rebuild and wait. For some, many times in the last several years. They wait on FEMA money, they wait on news about a government buyout, and they wait on the next major storm that could put them under water again.
