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”:

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

Update: Atlantic City flooded.

Awful:

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

Heartbreaking:

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.
