Ventnor And Sandy

Posted: Updated:
Ventnor, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

The shore town of Ventnor, New Jersey was no stranger to the destruction of Superstorm Sandy and one-year later this town seems to be picking up the pieces the best that they can.

One resident Todd Jones talked about how he decided to stay in his home and wade out the weather during Superstorm Sandy. Being a photographer, Jones took this opportunity to capture the town of Ventnor before and after the storm hit. He remembers listening to the radio in his home after losing power where the hosts warned people about the impending high tide. “It was like 8:00 and pitch black. I saw the water come up the driveway and up to the house and I thought here we go,” he said.

The day after the storm Todd took to the streets of Ventnor to capture the damage and destruction.

Now a year later, manmade dunes have been rebuilt along the beaches in Ventnor to hopefully help stop the flow of the water should another storm approach the Garden State.
