Last Jersey Shore town reopens post-Sandy (Mantoloking)

Last Jersey Shore town reopens post-Sandy

ublished: Feb. 23, 2013 at 1:43 AM

MANTOLOKING, N.J., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Mantoloking, N.J., allowed residents to move back in Friday, four months after Superstorm Sandy, the last Jersey Shore community to take the step.

Bob McIntyre, the town's emergency director, told The Star-Ledger of Newark only six households had registered by Friday. He expects more next week even though 200 of the 521 houses in town were swept away or rendered uninhabitable by the storm that hit the Mid-Atlantic region at the end of October.

Mantoloking, which had a population of 296 in the 2010 Census, growing to about 5,000 in the summer, had the highest average income in New Jersey and ranked 15th in the United States. The town is at the north end of the Barnegat Peninsula, a 20-mile spit of sand that ends in the south with Island Beach State Park.

1. If the predictions are correct,
and I believe they are, this community will be subjected to a similar super storm in the future. It could come sooner than expected. I fear it's going to become the new normal.
