TOMS RIVER - State officials say they are moving forward to replenish New Jersey beaches that were impacted by the monster snowstorm that socked the East Coast.
Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and state Environmental Protection Department Commissioner Bob Martin toured several coastal sites on Monday to get a first-hand look at the erosion and other damage the weekend storm caused.
Martin said the Army Corps of Engineers was doing an assessment of the state's coast, noting that state officials have already told corps officials that they will be seeking funds to replenish beaches and complete other needed work.
Several southern Jersey towns suffered major damage from the storm.
Flooding was a big problem in the region, affecting hundreds of homes and businesses. And parts of a bulkhead were damaged in Atlantic City.
