MANTOLOKING - Britain's Prince Harry headed to the Jersey Shore today to visit two communities hard hit by Superstorm Sandy.

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as his guide, Prince Harry stopped in the towns of Mantoloking and Seaside Heights in Ocean County.

Every one of Mantoloking's 521 homes was damaged or destroyed by Sandy last October, and scores of homes remain piles of rubble.

Prince Harry arrived in Mantoloking by car and took a walking tour with Christie to see some of the destruction on Barnegat Lane.

The next stop was Seaside Heights, where the prince and the governor walked the boardwalk to observe reconstruction efforts as well as the demolition of the roller coaster that was pushed into the Atlantic Ocean.
