Superstorm Sandy Updates
In late October, 2012, Superstorm Sandy dealt a devastating blow to marine facilities, navigation aids and channels along the New Jersey and New York coastlines. A few marinas in the surge area were lucky, but most were not so fortunate. The storm also changed the coastline itself, adding new "inlets" and choking the northern NJ ICW and other channels with sunken boats, sand, silt and debris from buildings and piers washed away by the storm.
The majority of marine facilities are open now, even in hard-hit areas. The New Jersey ICW and nearly all channels are open to navigation. Clean-up continues, and most major channels have been dredged -- others are scheduled for dredging through the summer.
