Months After Hurricane Sandy, The Shore Remains In Disarray
These photos were taken during a recent visit to the New Jersey seaside resort town of Point Pleasant. Towns at the Jersey Shore continue to rebuild and recover from the damage that was inflicted by Hurricane Sandy, in Fall of 2012. Although,the sand has been removed from the streets and the water damage has been cleaned up,the scars of the devastation continue to remain present.
Bulldozers are being utilized to push sand, back into its rightful place. Large machinery has been comissioned to sift through the piles of sand for debris.
Besides being extremely cold, I could not bring myself to smile during this visit to the beach. The destruction of the boardwalk is very discouraging to those of us whose childhood memories are solidly entrenched in the Jersey Shore.
New regulations determined by the Federal government and FEMA, will aid in determining how houses should be rebuilt, as well as what areas are now designated as flood zones.
