Absecon Island Was Completely Underwater During Hurricane Sandy

Imgur user theknowmad posted some great shots of what Absecon Island looked like during Hurricane Sandy.

Absecon Island is a barrier island on the Jersey Shore. It’s also home to Atlantic City.

The Atlantic City Inlet got swamped with a huge wave.

And Annette’s Coffee Shop’s parking lot became totally submerged in water.
