Does anyone know when they will let us go home?
Jim D October 31, 2012 at 10:28 AM
Does anyone have pics or info on the areas along bay and lagoons between 9th and 19th streets?

it's funny (or not) how each of us wants to see a picture of our house/street posted here. It's reassuring to look at some of these pics and know we may have come through this ordeal a little better than we thought.

Thanks for posting pix of south end ... How was asbury between 36 - 40th? Read an article that the dunes sort held in that area.
Mark Nick October 31, 2012 at 12:59 PM
Thanks for all the pics....do you have any from 10th and Central (NW Corner)? Hope you are all safe.

thanks for the photos everyone - nervous homeowners from Philly. Seems like lots of photos from teh northern and southern ends of hte islands - any info on teh 22nd and West ave locations? I'm encouraged by the photo of the 21st street dunes holding up well, but still expecting the worst. Thanks!
debbie M October 31, 2012 at 02:11 PM
any news on the condition of homes on the block of St. James Place that is closest to the beach (where the boardwalk starts)? Any one have pics of this area? DebbieM
Jane October 31, 2012 at 02:20 PM
Can anyone provide info on Asbury ave between 12 and 13th St where the old Shafto's was??
Tara McM October 31, 2012 at 02:35 PM
Thank you so much for all of the content and pictures throughout, and thanks to many people posting updates! I monitored your site from Bainbridge Island, WA, and was the only source of OCNJ-specific info to family evacuated and staying in Princeton. They are without cable or internet so they have sure appreciated updates!
wally joghnson October 31, 2012 at 02:53 PM
If I go for a walk down Central Ave., do I need a beachtag?
Allen Wright October 31, 2012 at 03:23 PM
Our place on west at 12th has about 24" of water in 1st floor
Grace October 31, 2012 at 03:25 PM
The pier sadly is not more!
George October 31, 2012 at 03:38 PM
I wonder how that Ocean City Marina deal is looking now? also a good thing the dredge pulled out before the job was finished. sorry all. couldnt help myself. I got over 2 feet of water in my home and am feeling the pain along with everyone else here. Perhaps a little levity will remind us all where we were and where we are now.
Kara S October 31, 2012 at 03:50 PM
Bob, we haven't been able to get onto the island. Any idea how our house might have fared at 237 Dory Drive, down by 55th Street?
DEAN October 31, 2012 at 04:28 PM
Thanks for the pictures. Does anyone know how the area at 34th and Central made out?
Lee Gabel October 31, 2012 at 04:34 PM
I love you Ocean City. You are a beautiful, resilient Island. You will bounce back with style and class. In 8 months, us visitors won't be able to tell that there was a devastating storm that hurt you. I can't wait to see you again.
Kenneth Sylvester October 31, 2012 at 04:49 PM
Bob, how did the area around 27th and West fare? Have a house in the middle of the block on the side of West away from the ocean. Any update would be great. Thanks. Ken
deb weaver October 31, 2012 at 05:15 PM
Debbie Thanks so much for this connection to some news of OC. any pics of knowledge of the homes on Central, within three blocks off 34th street (either way)? Any news would be so much appreciated!
deb weaver October 31, 2012 at 05:17 PM
I feel hopeful of getting some much waited news.
Paul Czarnik October 31, 2012 at 05:30 PM
Nancy October 31, 2012 at 05:55 PM
34 street had some damage
Debbie Nageli October 31, 2012 at 05:55 PM
Pictures are amazing, seeing so many familiar sites,hopeful the island can and will be up and running as we plan to be there for the Fourth of July, a long awaited return to a family vacation spot we hold fond memories of. Thoughts and prayers are with those that live and work there.
Meredith October 31, 2012 at 06:01 PM
not true
Lauren C October 31, 2012 at 07:21 PM
This damage to Ocean city is so sad!! Does any one know how Wonderland Pier is?
gerry way November 04, 2012 at 09:43 PM
A big thanks to Doug Bergen, Shawn Smith and Tracie Plachter for the great pictures. Bless the cleanup committees and the City of Ocean City....and whoever else is helping with the clean up/rebuild.. I'm sure it will be up and running by next season ... i'm too old or i'd be there helping all of you........!!

I have a pix of me on the rock jetty with the pier behind me, taken in1949 ! The latest one was taken in October 2012-- I;ve told friends that although the pier, like me, was somewhat dilapidated, we were both still standing. Now, just one of us is.
Doris Helveston November 05, 2012 at 10:45 PM
Doug and group. Thanks for getting the pix of 58th/59th and Central. I know "my ' pier is gone, but all the sand dunes, also? Those dunes weren't there in the late 40's or 50's. Mother Nature has her reasons--although we don't know what they are.

I just learned today that the WAWA ON 12th Street might not be open for another 4 to 6 months . Is. this true?
Newell138 November 12, 2012 at 12:16 PM
that sounds a little extreme to me, some of the stores on Asbury are already reopened, and Boyars just re-opened Saturday and they had 1.5 feet of water inside the store.. Wawa is really nothing more than a shell if you think about it, clean up, minor repairs and restock the shelves
