Demolition Begins On House In Bay In Mantoloking
A iconic image of Superstorm Sandy will soon be gone.
Demolition work started Thursday on a house that was swept into Barnegat Bay in Mantoloking. The house has been one of the defining images of the Oct. 29 storm.
A crane on a barge has been tearing the roof into pieces. The demolition company expects to be finished by Friday afternoon.
Mantoloking was the hardest-hit Jersey shore town. All 521 of its homes were damaged, and more than 200 were destroyed by the storm.
The ocean cut a channel through to the bay, a breach that had to be repaired with an emergency engineering effort.
