Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey

Widespread, severe damage occurred all along the coast of New Jersey during hurricane Sandy on October 29 & 30, 2012.

Vast majority of damage was caused by rampaging flood water from ocean and ocean-suppiled bay areas.

Photos below show just small sample of results;

Destroyed oceanfront houses; Mantoloking NJ

Normandy Beach, Toms River NJ

Houses severely damaged and moved by floodwater.

Collapsed foundation wall for small bungalow on bayside; Seaside Heights NJ

Front porch destroyed; Ocean Avenue, Belmar NJ

South end of Long Beach Island, NJ. Lower levels of oceanfront houses completely destroyed by flood water. However, relatively new pile-supported houses performed as intended, preventing total collapse. "Breakaway" walls around lower levels gave way, allowing water to flow under each house. Severe erosion of sand occurred under houses.
