My wife, Joy, found this video that shows the destruction from Hurricane Sandy on one street in Union Beach, NJ. This town is part of the township where I pastored in NJ. This damage shows the destructive power of the storm surge and the hurricane winds.
A side note: When we were looking to buy our first home about ten years ago, we looked at the house on end of this street! Although it is difficult to know for certain, I think the house is now the pile of debris at approx 1:27-1:34. Front Street, Union Beach, NJ.
