Atlantic City casinos endure storm mostly unharmed

    Atlantic City’s 12 waterfront casinos came through the superstorm largely unharmed.

    Nine of the casinos are on the Boardwalk, facing the ocean; three others are in the Marina district by the Inlet and bay.

    Most are reporting only minor damage like some small water leaks or a handful of broken windows.

    The casinos will confer with state regulators later Tuesday about a reopening date. All are eager to reopen, but acknowledge it still could be tricky getting employees and customers to come while still dealing with damage in their own communities.

    The shutdown is costing the casinos a collective $5 million a day in lost revenue.
