Atlantic City Boardwalk

October 30, 2012 by  

Atlantic City Boardwalk, It’s hard to imagine anything challenging the iconic images of the Atlantic City boardwalk, with its rough and tumble lifestyle glamorized in shows like HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire.”

But as Hurricane Sandy made landfall last night around 8 p.m., the famous boardwalk quickly fell prey to the storm’s damaging winds and heightened sea level. And while the surge burst through the streets, small shops, towering hotels and normally bustling casinos were exposed to “the perfect storm,” suffering hit after hit.

“I imagine these buildings are going to have a lot of flooding. Especially the lower floors,” Dr. Alan Blumberg, Stevens Institute of Technology oceanographer, told ABC News. “Atlantic City will look very different tomorrow and the next few days than it did yesterday and the day before. This is just a major situation, major damage.”
