Avon by the Sea didn’t fare as well as Bradley Beach.
Water from the surge washed back a couple of blocks and seems to have flooded most of the houses on Ocean Avenue and in the first ocean block. We saw a large number of people who had piled the much of the furniture from their first floor on the curb.
They suffered considerable damage to the boardwalk and buildings along the ocean. The pavilion on the North end of town was seriously damaged. One of the buildings was sitting upside down on the boardwalk.
I’ve included some of the pictures I took.
