Toms River shelter empties, its occupants sent to Monmouth County

TOMS RIVER — Dina Rogers-Manger’s life will be disrupted for the second time in two weeks.
The 47-year-old Ortley Beach resident lost her family home when several feet of water flooded her neighborhood in a storm surge from Hurricane Sandy. Her neighbor’s ranch home floated to the foot of her driveway, she said.
“I heard it hit the pavement,” Rogers-Manger said. “I’m very thankful to be alive.”
In the days following the storm, she has lived at the Pine Belt Arena shelter at Toms River High School North with hundreds of other displaced people. Rogers-Manger learned Wednesday that her new home, for now, will be Monmouth Park, which hosts horse racing.
