Slow recovery from Superstorm continues in South Jersey

About 600,000 New Jersey customers are still without power from Superstorm Sandy. It’s not just near the shore. 

There are pockets in Moorestown that still need to have their power restored. Cathy Dallon has her power back on, but some of her neighbors do not, and there are still utility poles littering the streets.

“Horrible, the amount of trees that came down in Moorestown is just horrible, I mean it looked like a war zone uptown and across Kings Highway, It was just terrible,” said Dallon.

Dennis Earl still has to deal with removing a tree that hit his roof.

“I’m looking for someone to cut it out without destroying more of my roof,” said Earl.

Both Dallon and Earl also have shore homes to deal with once everything is normal here. Earl hasn’t even been able to see the damage to his house on Long Beach Island.
