Almost five months after Hurricane Sandy, cleanup of hurricane debris continues throughout the state. Bob Martin, commissioner of the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), says the cleanup will go on right into the summer season.
The flounder season has been cut short by 25 days and some are worried because they're already facing higher insurance and dock rates along with higher gas prices, the recession and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
The strength of the latest winter storm is starting to be felt today. But the story of this nor'easter will be mostly about continuing winds through the overnight and flooding along the Atlantic coast, Delaware Bay and Raritan Bay.
Crews were out this afternoon on the Brick portion of the barrier island, securing temporary dunes to try to keep the water at bay. But the police chief says this community is well-prepared to handle the storm.
