Photo Essay

Super Storm Sandy At The New Jersey Shore

Super Storm Sandy

We all heard the reports, and watched our TV's, about Hurricane Sandy. We all know how Mother Nature can change our planet at-will. I took a trip in March to see for myself the damage, and give back to the community that lost so much. I was in awe! I stopped to photograph this area 4 months after the storm and couldn't believe the damage. Jet Star roller coaster sitting in the Atlantic Ocean. It used to sit majestically over it on the end of the pier for longer then I've been on the earth. The homes, not houses HOMES moved, leveled, destroyed , or just gone. My heart ached, my mind just stopped. I know we all have our own tragedies and heart aches. I just don't want this to be forgotten. I hope these photos will move you as I will not be the same after all I saw. Thanx for reading. Jerry

    We've all seen the damage via television and the Internet, but I'm sure nothing comes close to actually seeing it in person! A heart-stopping collection of photos that really tell the story of damage and loss. Definitely gets my vote....and for story of the week, too!!
