Re: Halloween Hurricane

Sandy was so devastating to the Jersey shore because it hit in exactly the wrong spot on a moon tide. Not that it was any different than other nor'easters, except for the fact that it did a lot of damage because of those factors. No one in living memory can remember such destruction on the barrier island around Seaside/Lavallette and up to the Mantoloking bridge. They are just starting to allow people back on the island, busing them in from Tom's River for a short time so they can assess the damage.
