Not sure about how much rebuilding. Friends in Brielle, Sandy Hook, Seaside, BeachHaven and shore places like that are not real optimistic, given the money & bank situation. Course they're still def in shock. Some have lost everything
Also, Gov. Christie may not get all the assistance he's looking for. That said, they've come back strong before and there's some heavy metal shoreside. Please support any good causes there you come across. And be grateful we live where weather's pretty damn benign.
BTW, some great flatwater paddling and surfing in Jersey. It's fine country.
