'Superstorm' Sandy: Your stories
Sandy Hits Sandy Hook, New Jersey
November 26, 2012 - A tour through Hurricane Sandy ravaged Sandy Hook and Fort Hancock with Tom Hoffman, Park Historian. The scene was breathtaking. Nike Missiles smashed through a garage door, damage to most of the historic buildings on Officers' Row, vehicles flipped upside down, roads and bike baths ripped up, roofs washed hundreds of yards away, a basement completely filled with sand, and four weeks later there still is no power or water. I spoke with Dan Foster, Superintendent of Niobrara National Scenic River, Nebraska, who was positive, but realistic about the enormous amount of work needed to be done. We want to give a special thanks to Mary Pat Doorley, Tom Hoffman, Dan Foster, and the rest of the National Park Service for their time and assistance.
