Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Floods

The famed Atlantic City boardwalk was flooded Tuesday morning, hours after the storm made landfall nearby at 8 p.m. on Monday. “The city is under siege,” said Thomas Foley, the chief of the city’s emergency management. “I’ve never seen anything like this.” At least two deaths in the city were blamed on the storm. While the casinos’ lights still shone, winds whipped by at 80 miles per hour while water washed into the city’s streets, trapping anyone who stayed. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie lashed out at Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford on Monday, with the governor saying he could not “in good conscience send rescuers in” since the mayor had told residents they could stay if they could not find a way to leave.
