MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  Eight Middle Tennesseans are spending their Thanksgiving on the New Jersey coast providing aid to Super-Storm Sandy survivors.

David Durham has been in Atlantic City all week helping homeowners dispose of damaged furniture and tear out water-soaked drywall.

“You can still see the water line on the houses and the buildings. It came up to, in some places, well over three feet – sometimes four feet. So you can pretty much assume that there’s interior damage in all of the houses that you drive by.”

ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY (AP/WMOT) — The nor'easter that moved up the East Coast is being blamed for more than 200,000 additional power outages in the same areas that were hit by Superstorm Sandy.

More than 750,000 homes and businesses, mostly in New Jersey and New York, are in the dark. That's down from a peak of more than 8.5 million following Sandy.
