As the Jersey Shore and all of New Jersey continue to assess the damage from the biggest natural disaster to hit this part of the country in our history, I thought I would take this opportunity to provide you with some photos and videos of the storm beginning to hit the shore. The video below is of Pier Village in Long Branch approximately a day and a half before Hurricane Sandy hit.
The video below was taken much later – only a few hours before Hurricane Sandy hit the Asbury Park Boardwalk. Notice how the Atlantic Ocean begins to actually hit the boardwalk in this video.
And, of course, there is the image gallery. The captions below are short and sweet, but they should indicate where the picture was taken and what it’s showing you. Take a look – it was an intense storm.
And that’s some before and after of Hurricane Sandy in the Northern Jersey Shore area of Monmouth County. It’ll take a lot of time to rebuild and get things back to normal, but we’re from New Jersey – we love a challenge!
