Boardwalk at Washington Boulevard.
The cleanup and reconstruction of
Long Beach continued Friday, eleven days after Hurricane Sandy slammed the city
Oct. 29. Crews of all kinds, from communications to sewage to power utilities, could
be seen working in all corners of town. Red Cross truckers were parked on
street corners handing out donations. Industrial trucks were digging out mounds
of sand on Oceanview. A water main break was under repair at West Park Avenue
at National Boulevard. FEMA representatives were taking photos of damaged
properties. And cranes picked up flood-damaged furniture, clothing and
appliances that piled up on streets. These were just
some of the scene Patch photographers captured on the city streets Friday morning
for this end-of-the-week photo gallery.
