Hot Off the Presses
Neighbor's Backyard Oil Spill Wreaks Havoc for Lido Beach Family
Locals Left Battling Insurance for Repairs for Almost a Decade
magine coming home to the overpowering smell of oil in your home every day—for eight years. That’s how long ago home heating oil from a neighbors leaking oil tank flooded the crawl space of Steve Kritzberg and Lynn Eskanazi Lido Beach home. “I see it percolating up from the cracks in the cement slab, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, we’re in trouble,’” Kritzberg said. “It’s awful. You walk into the house and it smells so bad that you’re thinking, ‘Oh my God, this is going to kill us. I gotta get out of here,’” Eskanazi said. They have had to move out of their home repeatedly because of the stench and have filed claims with their neighbor’s insurance companies to have 10 feet of soil removed from their property and their home rebuilt.
