Media accounts of damage
NBC Nightly News on October 31, 2012 featured Manasquan in its lead story: New Jersey reeling from Sandy's landfall. (It's never good to be the lead on a network news story about storm damage.)
The Star-Ledger photo gallery: Devastation on Manasquan Beachfront after Hurricane Sandy
ABC News has Interactive before and after images—scroll down to the pictures "near Brielle, New Jersey"
The public was not officially allowed to the Manasquan beach area until Saturday November 3, and a pass and proof of residency or ownership is required. Thus the video record is delayed and smaller than what you would expect.
