Below is one image coming out out Atlantic City, New Jersey, that looks like a scene from Planet of the Apes but is very real. It is of a roller coaster ride that used to be on a pier and was a destination spot of families for decades. During the hurricane the entire end of the pier was washed away, after the water receded, what was left of the ride washed up on the beach.

It is looking like NY will end up being the worst hit of the areas due to the flooding going out well beyond the initial evacuation zones. In one neighborhood alone a section of about 100 houses were destroyed by fire.
