Reflections on The Day After The Fire

Seaside Studio Post Seaside Park Fire

Suffice to say, yesterday afternoon and evening were a blur for many of us here in Ocean County. This morning we woke up and got a full look at the devastation in Seaside.

Obviously this was a smaller scale of destruction than Sandy, but it was still a similar feeling in the sense that, when everything was going on, the pictures were so shocking that it was hard to process. The next day rolls around, and we start to see the daylight images of what actually happened.

Quite literally, the line was drawn at Lincoln Ave, where we had our Seaside Studio this summer. As you can see in the picture above, our studio was literally at the line between total destruction to the south and only some damage to the north.

As the shore was reflecting on this past summer and we were just about to celebrate our return from the devastation of Sandy, we were hit with this sucker punch out of nowhere.

Obviously, again like Sandy, it’s going to take a few days to really take stock of what happened; why, how, what’s left, and what the next steps are. In the meantime of course, we will be there with you every step of the way with the latest updates and information.

There’s a good reason that we proudly call ourselves “Ocean County’s Hometown Station”.

Here’s another view that shows just how close the flames got to our Seaside Studio:
