There was a great deal of damage in the shore communities in Jersey. For anyone interested, this website has a series of damage videos of Ocean City, NJ. There are 8 of them.

There has been a great deal of damage to houses and lots of reconstruction will be necessary. There has been damage to roads and bridges which will take some time to fix.

Inland areas did better, of course. DC & Philly were lucky.
