Inland it's a mess and the beach area is a disaster zone...houses heavily damaged, sand dunes gone (now in the road). This is the road along the town beach.
My house is low lying on a tidal river and we did ok other than having a river in my drive-under garage. I had sealed off the doors with plastic and a 3 foot berm but about 6 inches of water leaked...no biggie in the overall scheme of things. It seems like the tree/wind damage was worse last year with Hurricane Irene but the flooding was much worse with Sandy. Things are getting back to normal though...kids are back to school after a week off.
