SEA BRIGHT - It will be at least a week before any residents or businesses can return to the storm-ravaged town of Sea Bright.

Mayor Dina Long says it will be at least seven to 10 days before property owners are allowed back into Sea Bright, saying they must first get the sewer system working and make sure any pipes carrying gas haven't sustained any damage.

Safety is also a concern due to the massive amounts of sand that Sandy pushed away from the beach and onto the streets, destroying many residences and businesses in its path.
