Eric Katz, a 30-year-old paraplegic, Toms River, NJ native, who has devoted his life to building and creating artificial limbs for amputees, lost his home and everything he owned during Hurricane Sandy.
When I hear a forecast that includes a storm, lately I'm listening for wind speeds and high tides and evacuation information. Coastal flooding is on the top of all of our minds, and at least for a while, that's going to be the "new normal" here at the Jersey Shore.
Are we really going through another storm? How many times is Mother Nature going to test us? We are trying as hard as we can to move forward from Sandy, and it seems like there's something to worry about with the forecast every week or so.
The devastation that so many Jersey Shore towns suffered from Hurricane Sandy is hard to put into words, and Union Beach is certainly one of those towns. Now you can help your neighbors in Union Beach by donating a gently worn prom dress.
I used to think that the really bad weather almost always misses the Jersey Shore, but since Sandy I feel the opposite. I think the Jersey Shore is much more stressed about weather than ever before, and who could blame us?
Car #17 from Funtown Pier's Arctic Circle ride, which had traveled approximately 10 miles and washed ashore in Point Pleasant Beach a few days after Sandy made landfall, was removed from the beach yesterday, according to the Barnegat Bay Island, NJ Facebook page. Check out this awesome video.
In an attempt to make sense of two tragedies that happened so close together, Hurricane Sandy and Sandy Hook Elementary School,the Sandy Ground Project will be building memorial playgrounds throughout New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, several along the Jersey Shore.
