Unquestionably, Superstorm Sandy and the snows that followed gouged the Jersey Shore in ways that will take years to overcome. But 20 years ago today, a nor'easter that didn't even have a name roared through and mauled the same coastline.
Down from 2.7 million, more than 300,000 electric customers remained without power late Wednesday from Hurricane Sandy last week, but the second part of the one-two punch on New Jersey, this week's nor'easter, put a snag in the state's recovery efforts.
Clean up efforts continue, utility crews are trying to restore power to those still without as folks along the Jersey Shore are sifting through rubble that was once their homes in the wake of Sandy. Unfortunately, another Nor'easter is on the way and is expected to hit mid-week.
