NJ Pictures of Hurricane Irene

Flooded Road in Sea Isle City

After the 5.8 earthquake on Wed - Hurricane Irene hit Saturday night. Here are some pictures of Hurricane Irene's impact on parts of NJ. We were lucky; our power was only out for two days and we didn't have any property damage. Most of the roads, however, around our place were flooded - and we couldn't leave.

My cousin also took VIDEO FOOTAGE of the damage in Northern Jersey, by my uncle's place - his footage was used on News 12.

I love this picture of a boarded up place in Asbury Park - it reminds me of the picture I should have taken, but didn't... the house across from us in Sea Isle was boarded up and had "No Wake" spray painted across the planks - wish I had snapped that one.

This is the place next to ours in Sea Isle - we woke up Friday to the sound of a table saws (cutting boards) and at least 50 seagulls squawking out of their minds - flying in circles.
