As Twitchy reported, the Jersey Shore started getting battered by Hurricane Sandy well before the destructive storm hit land. The aftermath of the storm has resulted in utter devastation and heartbreak.

Rasmussen reports that they will have limited data available. They are based in Asbury Park, N.J.

Like in Seaside Heights, N.J., the force of Hurricane Sandy has totally wiped blocks of the boardwalk away.
