On October 29, 2012, "Superstorm" Sandy (see also Hurricane Sandy) slammed in the eastern seaboard of the United States, making landfall just north of Atlantic City, NJ. The Borough was nearly destroyed when a storm surge of nearly 10 feet swept in from the bay beginning as early as the 28th. Most homes and businesses, including the famous Bahrs Landing and Lusty Lobster fishery were either damaged or totally destroyed. The borough lost several police cars and their fire station was destroyed.
