“Sandy” – Go to where the pictures are. ~cg. November 2012.

I grew up on the NJ Shore, just north of where Hurricane Sandy made landfall last week. I knew I’d want to get down to the area as soon as my schedule allowed. Managed to return to Point Pleasant this morning for a few hours. Here are a few favorites from the day. For a few brief moments, it was all kind eerily similar to working in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, or at earthquakes in Turkey, El Salvador or Haiti, and hurricanes Mitch in Honduras…  ~cg.

POINT PLEASANT, NJ.  A pleasure boat rests on the sidewalk in Point Pleasant, NJ on Monday, November 5, 2012. Hurricane Sandy struck the New Jersey coast one week ago, causing more than 100 storm related deaths and an estimated $50 billion in damage along the East Coast of the U.S. An estimated 4.8 million people were left without power in 15 states, and the New York Stock Exchange was closed for two days in the wake of the Superstorm. Nearly 20,000 commercial flights were cancelled between Oct. 27th. – Nov. 1st. as well.  © Chet Gordon/THE IMAGE WORKS
