I originally posted photos of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy a few days ago of some of the lesser damaged areas by the Toms River and the Barnegat Bay. This time, I managed to get to the ocean side of Point Pleasant.
Link to original Hurricane Sandy post.
There are still many police and National Guard roadblocks/checkpoints around the damaged areas to prevent looting. A lot of roads are also blocked by school busses because either the areas have no power or are still flooded.
Cleanup is going well and at a speedy pace in some areas while some areas report no cleanup at all. Seaside Heights and Long Beach Island residents are still not allowed there except for a few hours for a grab and go session Monday. No one is allowed in the more impacted areas unless they have proof of residence in that specific area. If you cannot prove your residence you will be turned away. It’s just one more measure to deter looting.
Anyway, here are some more images of the aftermath of Sandy.
