Hurricane Sandy roared through Cape May County on Monday, Oct 29, driving a massive storm surge onto the barrier islands. Winds and rain started Sunday and continued through two high tides, coinciding with a full moon that night.

Thankfully for Cape May and other area shore-points, Sandy turned into a post-tropical cyclone before making landfall south of Atlantic City around 8 p.m.

By Tuesday morning, parts of the county looked like a war-zone, however, Cape May, the Wildwoods, Stone Harbor and Avalon fared better than expected. Avalon and Stone Harbor experienced an all time record high tide Monday night, but the water had receded by Tuesday afternoon and damage seemed minimal.

Many believe that the combination of the storm hitting 20 to 25 miles north of Cape May and some two hours before high tide, saved this area from immense flooding.
