DEVASTATION: Photos Capture Hurricane Sandy Destruction In Seaside Heights

Photographer shows iconic Seaside Heights Boardwalk underwater.

Governor Christie first told the story. These photos confirmed it.

A local photographer captured the partial destruction of the Seaside Heights Boardwalk.

In Seaside Heights, "the roller coaster or the log flume is in the ocean," Christie said.

"The level of devastation at the Jersey Shore is unthinkable," he said.

Rides and chunks of one of the town's piers are in the water, Christie said.

Now is time for the rebuilding, once the storm moves away. it won't be easy.

I would like to think and pray that the town that made those kids so famous and rich would be able to depend on in rebuilding. Seaside does not need you kids back there, but maybe some $$$$ assistance with starting some funds would be a great way to start.

Schu- why don't you stfu.....there is NO need to blame anyone for this..it is a NATURAL DISASTER.....everyone seems to want to blame the "Jersey shore cast" but ya know what think about how much money they drew in to the town and surrounding towns...so why don't u quit blaming and ask what you can do to help...people have lost everything so you should be thankful you have a home to be rude from..... And mark who are you to say that we don't need them back here...did u stop to think that just because you may not like the way they act they are people too? They have feelings and they are hurt by this as well they considered this their home...how would u feel if someone said they didnt need you back somewhere...as a matter of fact I believe one of them lives in toms river and could very well have lost a lot as well.... To anyone who has lost it all of lost friends or family....my prayers are with you and we as a state will work together to get back what we all lost...

I'm looking for pics of Blaine st as well.

I live at corner of Blaine and Barnegat water got waist high. There was only water from Central Ave to Bay Blvd. The water basically cut town in half long ways. The ocean block came over into the streets but damage was minimal, the wind damage is another story but everything is still standing. Wish I could tell you more. My prayers to everyone, I hope everyone makes it through this tough time, because I know I'm havin a hell of a time!

Dawn, I spent my summers at 786 North Dr. in Brick, NJ in the original house built around 1930. Did North Dr. get hit hard? I'm a NJ native, now living in AZ, but LOVED going to the shore house. Hope you didn't lose too much.
