Tropical Storm Irene still taking toll on trailer park
Roger and Loretta Martin stood outside their mobile home on a spectacular spring day and looked at their neighborhood near the rippling Hoosic River. Seven months after Tropical Storm Irene punished this pocket of the Berkshires, the view remained startling: mobile homes leveled to their decks, stripped of siding by demolition workers or vandals; wood and glass and misshapen metal tossed about. The Martins are among the lucky. Nearly 200 of their former neighbors at The Spruces mobile home park no longer live there.
