    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A UNC Charlotte student was concerned on Tuesday when his family members evacuated their New Jersey home.

    Alex Passannante said his family didn't want to take chances because his 93-year-old grandmother lives with them.

    Neighbors told his father the house likely has water damage.

    Passannante also said the storm destroyed his cousin's beachfront home where his family members used to spend summers, but he is just glad that they are safe.
