A trip to the New Jersey shore may not be the same for years.
Sandy has wrecked boardwalks up and down the New Jersey coast. Several were almost completely destroyed. Others were partly damaged.
At Seaside Heights, a pier is wrecked and a roller coaster is partially submerged in the ocean. Several northernmost blocks of the Atlantic City Boardwalk, which was the first in the nation, also were destroyed.
A bridge in Ocean County is closed due to parts of destroyed houses that had floated onto it.
Authorities say more than 20 fires were raging during the storm late last night in Ocean County, with firefighters unable to reach some right away because of flooding..
