MANASQUAN - A week after Hurricane Irene forced the evacuation of much of the Jersey Shore, residents and businesses are finally getting back to normal during the unofficial last weekend of the summer.

While some communities, such as Spring Lake, have to repair their boardwalk, many communities say they were spared the worst damage.

In Manasquan, officials say the biggest damage was the loss of admission fees and business because of the evacuations.

With Labor Day weekend here, many businesses are hoping that people will come out for one last weekend and they will recoup a little bit of their losses.
