A raging fire that apparently started in a custard shop tore through a New Jersey shore boardwalk Thursday, destroying more than 30 businesses in a tourist mecca just recovering from the damage it sustained in Superstorm Sandy.

Flames and thick black smoke billowed from a long stretch of the boardwalk in Seaside Park, collapsing buildings as the fire quickly spread north into neighboring Seaside Heights, where the MTV reality series “Jersey Shore” was filmed. “

No Moore: Obama Flubs Name Of Oklahoma City Devastated By Tornado, Calls It ‘Monroe’

 

 

 

” During his visit to the Jersey Shore with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Tuesday, President Obama referred to the wrong city in Oklahoma devastated by a tornado last week.

Even though Mr. Obama had just visited the city of Moore, Okla. Sunday and toured the path of destruction the tornado left, in remarks in Asbury Park, New Jersey Tuesday he sent a shout-out to the victims in Monroe, Okla., which is more than 200 miles to the east of Moore.

“You can count on the fact that you won’t be alone. Your fellow citizens will be there for you. Just like we’ll be there for folks in Breezy Point and Staten Island, and obviously we’re going to be there for folks in Monroe, Okla.” “

Watch The Demolition Of The Seaside Heights Roller Coaster

 

 

 

 

” We got our hands on a video clip showing the demolition of the Seaside Heights, N.J., Star Jet roller coaster that was sucked into the sea last year and became a half-submerged icon of the damage wrought on the state by hurricane Sandy. Shot on May 14, during a visit by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Prince Harry, the clip will be part of a documentary called Heart of the Shore by 250 Productions.”

6 Months After Sandy, Thousands Homeless In NY, NJ

 

 

 

 

” The 9-year-old girl who got New Jersey’s tough-guy governor to shed a tear as he comforted her after her home was destroyed is bummed because she now lives far from her best friend and has nowhere to hang her One Direction posters.

A New Jersey woman whose home was overtaken by mold still cries when she drives through the area. A New York City man whose home burned can’t wait to build a new one.

Six months after Superstorm Sandy devastated the Jersey shore and New York City and pounded coastal areas of New England, the region is dealing with a slow and frustrating, yet often hopeful, recovery. Tens of thousands of people remain homeless. Housing, business, tourism and coastal protection all remain major issues with the summer vacation — and hurricane — seasons almost here again.

By many measures, the recovery from Superstorm Sandy, which struck Oct. 29, has been slow. From Maryland to New Hampshire, the National Hurricane Center attributes 72 deaths directly to Sandy and 87 others indirectly from causes such as hypothermia due to power outages, carbon monoxide poisoning and accidents during cleanup efforts, for a total of 159.

Christie estimated 39,000 New Jersey families remain displaced, down from 161,000 the day after the storm. In New York, more than 250 families are still living in hotel rooms across New York paid for by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, while others are still shacking up with relatives or living in temporary rentals.”

 ” Dated November 13th, one noticed by a resident who wishes to remain anonymous, stated “Your structure has possible structural of footing failures.”

It went on to say the structure would be demolished by November 30, 2012, just 17 days from the notice.   The order allowed the residents to request a hearing, but also threatened by fines of up to $2,000 per week if they did not comply with the order and fix their homes before the 30th. “
