Hurricane Sandy Candlelight Vigil Set For Tonight
Today marks the three year anniversary since Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy devastated the Jersey Shore and the east coast. A candlelight vigil is happening tonight in Ortley Beach
Ortley Beach was one of the hardest hit towns three years ago
Tonight, the vigil is happening with hopes of reminding others that three years after Superstorm Sandy that many are still not back in their homes, and that they are still fighting for protection from future storms.
The remembrance will be held at Fourth Avenue at the boardwalk in Ortley Beach. The documentary “Heartbreak and Healing After Sandy” by Sandra Levine, a local photographer and reporter, will be shown beginning at roughly 6:15 p.m. Afterward, tiki torches will be lit and a vigil held on the beach until 8:30 p.m.
