POINT PLEASANT - Point Pleasant Borough Administrator Christine Riehl says the town has made great strides in recovery, due in part to many municipal departments working together.

Riehl says the Department of Public Works was instrumental in debris and sand removal. More than 2,800 feet of the boardwalk was damaged by the storm, but it was completely reopened by Memorial Day weekend.

More than 42 percent of homes in the area were damaged by Sandy. Houses are being repaired and elevated and they hope that by next summer everyone will be back in their homes.

Eric Landskroner reports from Point Pleasant, taking a look at how the community is recovering, and talking about the progress being made in rebuilding what Sandy took away.
