MANASQUAN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Manasquan was one of the Monmouth County communities hardest hit by Hurrricane Sandy, but an event coming up hopes to help the borough out.
“We’re struggling, but we’re making progress now. In the beginning, it was so sad,” Mayor George Dempsey told WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams. “We had 60 percent of the town was under water. We had 1,800 homes out of 3,700 homes.”
Now the sand has been sifted and the boardwalk is being rebuilt.
Homeowners, including the mayor are picking up the pieces.
