SEASIDE PARK - Gov. Chris Christie has spent the last year visiting New Jersey communities devastated by Sandy, and on the anniversary of the storm, he again visited the hardest-hit towns.

Gov. Chris Christie started the day thanking volunteers and first responders at a Seaside Park firehouse that's still under construction.

Christie says it's a day to celebrate how far the state has come in its recovery while not forgetting those who still haven't returned to their homes.

In Sayreville, first responders and weary homeowners applauded news that buyout offers were on the way for those ready to try their luck elsewhere. And in Union Beach, a town that still bears the scars of Sandy, a husband and wife were reminded why they call it UB Strong.

Christie attended a Newark prayer service, thanked volunteers in Moonachie, and joined a day of service in Union Beach and a pot luck dinner in Sea Bright. He also made stops in Newark, Moonachie, Belmar and Brick.

The governor says we're all not whole until "everyone individually is whole."

Superstorm Sandy destroyed more than 340,000 homes and businesses in the state. The storm made landfall in New Jersey, just north of Brigantine.
