The boardwalk town of Seaside Heights, NJ, best known for being the location where MTV’s Jersey Shore is filmed, has declared martial law in the wake of damage from Sandy.
6 Action News, the ABC affiliate based out of Philadelphia, reported that the fact, while showing the damage to rides and attractions in the area. Several other nearby towns are also under martial law, with the devastation to property and lives not yet clear.
“We know people are there, we’re keeping an eye on them, and they need to stay on their property. If they come off their property to come off the island, then they don’t get back on. It’ll be a while before anybody gets back on the island until we make it safe,” Toms River Police Chief Mike Mastronardy told the station.
