Coping After Irene

VPR/Melody Bodette
After Jon Graham and Beth Frock's house was destroyed by Tropical Storm Irene flood waters, rescue workers marked it to keep people from going inside.

Today we check in with a couple who lost their home to Tropical Storm Irene.

Jon Graham and Beth Frock live in Rochester with their two teenage daughters. Jon works as an acquisitions editor for a publishing house and Beth has a clothing store in town and also works shifts at the Rochester Café.

Their home was destroyed on August 28th by a brook that overran its banks, eroded the land supporting the foundation, and toppled the house to the ground.  

VPR's Mitch Wertlieb visited Jon and Beth shortly after the storm and in this third update since the loss of the home the couple lived in for 15 years, finds out how they're coping with the long road to recovery.
