New Jersey's delicate barrier islands are a hazardous wasteland of badly eroded shore, ruined beachfront homes, flooded streets and damaged utilities.

The full extent of the devastation at the Jersey Shore is beginning to come into sharper focus, nearly 48 hours after Hurricane Sandy made landfall with high winds and a huge storm surge.

All up and down the New Jersey coast, signs of the good life lie scattered and broken. On the barrier island where MTV's hit show "Jersey Shore" is taped, $3,000 barbecue grills are buried in the sand and nearly all of the homes in one wealthy community are seriously damaged or destroyed.

Gov. Chris Christie joined President Barack Obama aboard Marine One for an aerial tour of the storm damage Wednesday afternoon.
