I cant help but be proud of our great state. A lot of people are in great spirits and everybody is giving their family, friends, or strangers a helping hand. I love the driving spirit we have for New Jersey!

I made it through the storm with no real damage, have power but no cable or internet still but really can't complain. Lots of staten island is destroyed. To see ships and cars all over some streets has been insane. I have some friends who lost their entire houses, they are just completely gone and they lost everything. Its been a really crazy week.

The temperatures are dropping. If no power/heat leave all faucets to a slow drip so the pipes don't freeze. Some of my neighbors didn't know to do this and ended up getting immense water damage. Survive Sandy and then get flood damage from frozen pipes. It ain't fair.

Sorry to hear about your neighbors. Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to do that right away. I had no idea what to do and was starting to worry about that today.

I have been working 12 hour shifts responding to this hurricane. Devastating and sad. I spent three days in Union Beach, a day in Highlands, Keansburg, and a day at Spring Lake. What some people went through in Highlands and Union Beach is unimaginable. We are helping them the best we can, supplementing the local police departments with extra bodies so they can get back to their own homes that have been destroyed also. Half of highlands PD lost their own personal houses, yet they came out to work to help their townspeople. That's what cops do.

People houses, total streets, have been decimated. Even giving someone a shoulder to cry on or a pat on the back, or an ear to listen helps them in the slightest of ways.

I'm getting tired of people bitching about no power when I've sen what I've seen.

Take it from me. Find out where and when donations are being accepted and help these people out in Monmouth and Ocean.

Gotta get to bed, we've been out there since Tuesday and we are going nonstop 12 hour shifts straight through next week.

Hopefully I can vote. !!

Peace everyone and be thankful for what you have.

Jimmy leeds i live in union beach and have all my life and i wanna thank you for helping out here. Me personally, im fine, only the things in my shed and garage were ruined along with a car, and i still dont have power but i am fortunate. I had a foot of water all around my house and im on 10th st, 11 blocks from the beach front. It is comforting to see the whole town come together and offer a hand in any way they can. Its unbelievable to see all the houses completely destroyed and washed into the bay only a few blocks away. The deck from jakeabobs washed all the way from jakeabobs to 8th street. Literally the whole town was underwater. Theres numerous people missing, and a friend of mine has spoken to a diver that says shes pulled 4 bodies from the bay. I cant even imagine how long it is going to take to clean up this town.

Down my grandmothers street in Rockaway NY (Beach 141)

the top one is the sea wall that was just destroyed, the asphalt was torn off the ground.
The bottom was a house on the beac

my grandmothers house was ok physically except for the 8 feet of water (about a foot+ still remain) in her basement, her house is about a block into rockaway. Further down toward the boardwalk, its even crazier. Entire sections are just gone...

The only thing I can add to this is if you see any of the workers trying to restore your power, just keep in mind many of them are from out of state and left on short notice Sunday. I have also seen more than a few pass through the ER in Newark with injuries. They are working 16+ hours days until power is restored.

Just got power back today. Man, it has been a crazy week.

Not looking for any sympathy though, those living on the water front towns, some lost everything. Help out! I've been volunteering like a mad man lately and words cannot describe what an uplifting feeling you receive and give to people just by being there.

This week truly has changed my life.

My parents were told it could be up to 8 months before they can move back into their house. The gas infrastructure has to be completely rebuilt. Hopefully they'll at least be able to go in to get important documents and valuables.

As you can tell by my name, I have seen some of this damage up close. It's weird that parts of Toms River didn't even lose power, but other parts got wrecked. My parents live in Silverton, and got flooded out. They only lived two blocks from the bay. Around 10pm on Monday night, the surge started coming into their house. They lost all of their whole bottom floor, both cars, all appliances and whatnot. It really sucks, and things like this happened to the whole neighborhood.

What's really crazy is the looting situation. My parents were working on their house yesterday, and they have state troopers in uniform and undercover monitoring the whole area. People come in off the bay in rowboats and jetski's trying to steal stuff. The officers are being told 'if you loot, we will shoot'. Yesterday two people were shot, one died. As mentioned before, this situation is unbelievable.

I just feel bad for my wife who has had to deal with my mother over the last week.

Is that confirmed? I am also in Toms River and did not see that anywhere... That's nuts if it's true... My family home is over by Cattus... we just now got power, nine days later in this neighborhood.

On the light side, saw that APP posted on facebook that the Devils, some current players, and the mascot will be at the Toms River Elks Lodge on Washington Street handing out gifts to children at 12:30 today. Glad to see them getting involved! I wonder what players it is.

I am not sure where my parents heard it from, but there are signs in the neighborhood saying that looters will be shot. Crazy.

I wish I saw this earlier. I would have met up with you to see how you were doing. I was patrolling in an unmarked, and of course wearing my black Devils hat. Brook Road is just too sad...........Front Street between Dock & Beach actually had dry houses.....the ones facing the water.......very lucky. Today was my first day not in the area. PM me your address (if you want to) if I get back there I will stop by. Glad it wasn't horrible for you

He lives on Sandshore Dr. He got power yesterday. My office in downtown Manasquan still does not have power. I think it must be on the same circuits as the beachfront, which is totally closed. They are allowing limited visits by residents to the area between the railroad tracks and teh bridges to the beachfront, but nobody is allowed to t beachfront yet. National Guard and NJSP are making sure of that.
