The Chasers Adopt An NJ Town - My9 New Jersey

The Chasers Adopt An NJ Town

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

The one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy is coming up on October 29th and in honor of the progress that has been made and that which still needs to be done, the Chasers have agreed to adopt a town in New Jersey that was directly affected by the storm in order to check up on the progress and needs that are taking place there.

As of September 30, 2013, $5.6 billion in aid has been paid to New Jersey storm victims and sadly, so many people are still not in their homes.

Ringleader, Bill Spadea has decided to keep an eye on Seaside heights being that this town has suffered not only the devastation of Superstorm Sandy but also the recent boardwalk fire that left much of what was recently rebuilt as ash.

Sibile Marcellus will keep following the progress in Mantoloking. If you recall this was the area where houses where literally floating in the river and into bridges after much of that town was swept away by the storm surge.

Bill Anderson has dibs on the rebuilding in Atlantic City. He is also interested in following the politics behind AC that includes why people weren’t advised properly to evacuate and what their plan is for moving forward.

Personal reasons has Ronica Clearly following Ventnor, New Jersey where some of her family still resides and where she spent summers on the beaches there as a kid.

Kate Mosso has decided to stick with Ortley Beach, New Jersey. The last time she was there, two-months ago, it was still looking like a ghost town.

Meg Baker will be chasing the progress in Long Beach Island. Her family lives close to the area and she is interested in exploring the washed up boats that were scouring the streets after the storm.

Currently, HBO is filming a documentary over the last year of Sandy recovery specifically in New Jersey. They are also hosting an event for the end of their film that will take place in Union Beach.

He's taken his camera to Costa Rica, Fiji, California, and up and down the entire east coast, but some of his most beautiful work stems from right here in New Jersey specifically at Seaside Park, where he was born and raised.
