Another Breezy Point?

ID: 667802

This is Mantoloking, New Jersey, a barrier island town pummeled by storm Sandy throughout Monday and early Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, a natural gas fire rekindled in the evacuated borough, wreaking even more havoc. Firefighters are apparently unable to reach the scene because of flooded roads. At least 14 homes have already been destroyed.
