Superstorm Sandy - 7 Months Later

Seven months ago, Superstorm Sandy hit my hometown in South Jersey and left massive destruction in her path.  It took me a while, but I finally took the time to drive through the areas of Bay Head, Mantoloking and Seaside Heights to see some of the hardest hit regions.  On May 3, I visited the Seaside Heights boardwalk as construction crews worked tirelessly to get the strip ready for the rush of visitors it would be receiving in just a few short weeks on Memorial Day weekend.  After hearing news of the possible destruction of Casino Pier's Jet Star roller coaster, which landed in the ocean when the pier was torn apart by the storm, I wanted to get there to capture some images of the iconic landmark before it was too late.  On May 14, 2013, the Jet Star roller coaster was demolished.  A time-lapse video of the removal of the Jet Star can be found on the ABC Eyewitness News website.  Below are some of the photographs I took during my quick visit to Seaside Heights.
