Wildwood Crest Cape May Hurricane Sandy Destruction


Cape May and Wildwood Hurricane Sandy Destruction - Images Part One - Cape May

The Mayor of Cape May, N.J. says it appears they dodged a bullet, with minor flooding and sand filled streets.  "We were within about three hours of getting a direct hit," said Cape May Mayor Ed Mahaney, Jr.
It was the closest Cape May has come to a direct storm hit in 50 years.

I decided to take a first hand look at the areas yesterday we took a ride in Cape May and recorded a short video on the Beach Ave clean up area. Overall Cape May has come back strong and it appears that we did receive minimal damage. On the Wildwood Crest site I did observe severe Marina dock damage and also noted that Harbor View Marina suffered three boat sinking's and Schooner Yacht Marina in Wildwood had minor damage.

Take a look at some first views of the Cape May and Wildwood Crest areas from Halloween Day.
