Hurricane Sandy – Destruction in New Jersey – And Where to Start Finding Help

by Ed Magdziak • November 1, 2012 • Newsy JerseyComments (0)1546

Our hearts go out to all the people affected by Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and other states. The hurricane has caused destruction all throughout New Jersey, especially along the coast. The news programs have showed images the last few days that at times are hard to believe. Giant stretches of the boardwalk of Atlantic City gone. A roller coaster at Seaside Heights sitting in the ocean as if the boardwalk has been pulled from under it like a tablecloth. There are still thousands of people without power. Gas lines are hours deep.

But, we are Jersey Strong and will get through this.

Some of the ways we’ve been finding gas are through searching the hashtag #njgas on Twitter, using the phone app called GasBuddy and even has an Open Gas Station finder.

Governor Christie has been very busy on Twitter spreading information about different state programs, helpful tips and updates on his activities.

The Asbury Park Press website has invaluable information for shore residents and for the rest of us who want to offer support and help out.

The Star Ledger’s also has thorough coverage of the storm aftermath as well as a Live Gas Blog that pulls information from Twitter into one place.

Here are some more resources that offer help in these tough days:

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

NJ 2-1-1 New Jersey Help Site

NJ Office of Emergency Management

American Red Cross

Jersey Central Power & Light
