Pics: Hurricane #Sandy already taking toll on Atlantic City, Jersey Shore; Updated: Devastating photos

Wow. As Twitchy reported, Hurricane Sandy flooding already started yesterday.  Now these on-scene photos show  that the Jersey Shore is already taking a hit, even before Sandy makes landfall.

That evacuation was necessary.

Sandy is already taking a toll on Atlantic City, N.J.

Other areas along the shore are getting hammered already as well.

Yikes. Scary!

And Seaside Heights, home of MTv’s “Jersey Shore”:

And in Belmar, N.J.

Listen to Governor Christie: “Don’t be stupid.” Stay safe, New Jersey!

Update: Atlantic City flooded.


The White Horse Pike, which leads in and out of Atlantic City, is now submerged:

And Seaside Heights, N.J.

Cape May, N.J.


Rising water isn’t the only danger. Downed electrical lines are suspected of starting this car fire in Burlington City, New Jersey.

Wildwood has also taken a beating:

Update: Relentless pounding by Sandy has left Seaside Heights virtually underwater.

We continue to pray for all affected by this massively devastating storm.

    Wow. The power of nature is incredible and not to be underestimated. My wish is for everyone in the path of this storm and its effects is to stay safe (and don’t be stupid).

      Thank you! I’m on the North Shore of Long Island, already have lots of damage around town, white caps in parking lots near boat ramps, at least 5 boats down in the bay, 45′ sail boat smashing against a sea wall. This could be the worst storm I’ve ever seen in my 50+ years.

        I grew up on the beaches of Center Island and Oyster Bay. I’ve been wondering how they fared, is that where you are? Can you give more details?

    Where’s Al Gore when we need him 😛

    God Bless everyone in the path of this storm. Stay safe.

    I was amazed at the one guy standing at the edge of death as 15ft waves heaped up behind him on fox.

    I think that Seaside bridge pic is quite misleading. There’s no way to tell what part of the bridge that 2nd pic shows. If it were of the highest part of the bridge, my house would be under water.

    There’s gong to be a lot of clean up!

    Can someone please find and muzzle Pat Robertson before he says something stupid?

    • Lori Richey

      Too late. Well, I don’t know if it is him or not but been seeing headlines about God punishing the US. Didn’t go read them though.

        Interesting how God only punishes seacoasts…. and there’s never been a natural disaster in Vegas.

    • PhillyCon

      Tell me about it. I was already arguing against this nonsense elsewhere.

    My older bro has a shore house in Avalon, NJ but it’s built like 30 over top of a business so I think it’ll survive. It’s creepy to think ALL the places I spent my childhood & adult years getting drunk are currently underwater. I’m sure the Princeton will survive it’s got multiple floors

    Be careful out there everyone!

    Stay safe, you all. So scary.

    I’m sorry, but several hurricanes a year hit the gulf states, and not such a big deal is made about it. I’m concerned about the people up there, but let’s stop pretending it’s armageddon. Stay safe people.
