Manasquan

You can't beat Mother Nature

Brittany Joline was a senior in high school when Hurricane Sandy hit her hometown of Manasquan, New Jersey. Due to her parents’ recent divorce, she and her father had only been living in their house for four weeks when the storm came. They left after hearing about the mandatory evacuation and when they returned, they found that their home completely destroyed. In this narrative, Brittany talks about the damage the storm caused in her community as well as the recovery process of Manasquan.
