After working non stop (18 hours on) since last Sunday I have finally
gotten home before 11pm.

As most of you know I'm a photojournalist for Gannett in New Jersey.

After 20 years in the business, Sandy is the worst event I have ever had to deal with.
The scope of this weather event will be talked about for many years to come. It will change
everything for everyone in New Jersey. It will change lives of people that never felt a drop
of rain or felt a gust of wind from this storm.

I have posted links to some of the images from the team of photojournalists I work with.

And YES I finally have power, heat and internet ... out since last Sunday.
Gas lines like back in the 70's.. Odd and Even days for gas..Oh Boy!!!

Thanks
Mark

Glad to hear/read you and your family are ok. Sad to see this devastation & worst to see so many historical sites destroyed. I wonder if I may ask --- do you have any insight to the Tinton Falls area is doing? I have family there --- so far no contact. 

Thanks
Dan

Power was out to over 2 million as of this morning.

JCP&L looks like only about 3000 without power in the Tinton Falls area.
Cell phones have been a no go since Sunday. Spotty at best..

 I had to hard wire an old school phone into my house to get
any type of phone service.  Verzion is the ONLY cell phone service

Inland was a lot of wind damage, down trees and wires. Water damage
along the coast.

Monmouth Cty was hit hard.. Union Beach, Keansburg, Keyport..hit hard

Boardwalk GONE... Belmar and Spring Lake

Mantoloking is totally wiped off the map.
Seaside will NEVER be the same.

The tidal surge is what really did alot of people in. It didn't rain all that hard or heavy
during Sandy's land fall.. But the high tide and full moon pretty much
put a nail in the coffin of some towns.


It pretty much back to normal (sans the gas rationing) north of Sayreville.
Woodbridge and North just dealing with some power outages, but the gas lines
are a throw back to the 70's gas lines.... 3 hour wait on some days.

CRAZY... All I can tell you is to keep trying... Good Luck

Just watched on Japanese news that everything's still really fucked up, didn't look like much has been done to clean up the area where they were at (I think Manhatten?) shops still closed, wood debris pilled up and scattered, place was empty, no work or clean up crews in sight, like a ghost town, and it's already been a month. What the fuck's going on?

OK.. Let me give you a little update from the Jersey Shore..

38.5 BILLION dollars in damage...  yea.. that a B for BILLION.

I've been from Middlesex Cty to Atlantic Cty photographing
the storm, damage , clean up and the start of the rebuilding.

We will be back for sure, it's going to take alot of time and money
to bring the Shore area back to what it once was.

For some it will NEVER be the same. There are areas that
have been completely wiped off the map. Nothing left.

Homes swept out to sea or leveled by the surging tide.
Thousands of boats and cars missing or damaged beyond repair.

I was up in Perth Amboy (across the Arthur Kill from Staten Island , NY which was hit hard)
they are just starting to clean up the waterfront area. Tons of debris
cleaned from the water and streets. Over 50 boats lined the streets
that had to be removed.

Some areas are returning to normal, or a new normal.
Some are living out of Red Cross tent cities while
gas, electric, water, sewer systems are being rebuilt.

Some people are seeing their homes for the first time, almost
a month after the storm hit. That's how bad it is....

A month just to clear enough roadway or build a new roadway
just to be able to see where your house used to be.

This event will take YEARS to recover from, if recovery is possible.

There are plenty of newspaper websites to view local images.

http://www.app.com
http://www.mycentraljersey.com
are the two papers I work for..

If you have a minute or two just take a look at some of the galleries
of images and videos that we have been producing.

The hardest hit areas of NYC were Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens.
For New Jersey it spans from Cape May to Carteret an span of a little less then
200 miles of coastline will be changed forever.

Ocean County (where I live) got hit the hardest.
The beaches I grew up surfing are gone. Changed forever.
Seaside Heights, and the Casino Pier area were heavily damaged.
All the barrier islands took a direct hit.

Sorry about a long winded response.. Just check out the links
posted to see the local end of what is going on.
National news just gives you an overall look at what is happening.

If you can donate, please do......

Thanks
Mark

I was just telling someone last night that my brother in Brooklyn, or Red Hook if you know the area, has lost half of his living space, and the other half is damaged bad enough that he really shouldn't be living there. Yet, he is ecstatic that he has a roof over his head because as Mark and Wes mentioned, many people have no home. My brother has talked with his landlord and they are not going to do anything to fix the place; the landlord lost his entire home in one of the fires. Brother would move, but there is no where to move. A friend of his lost his home and has been looking since the storm with not a single opportunity available. Just like New Orleans after Katrina hit, many people will be forced to leave the area, just because there is nowhere to go.
