Hurricane Sandy was a devastating stormevent that impacted the East Coast of the United States in October of 2012. Ortley Beach, New Jersey was among the communities that saw severe damage in the wake of the storm.There are many factorswhich may contribute to or have an effect on the amount of damage sustained by a structure during a hurricane event, and an identification and analysis of these parameters would prove useful in predicting and preventing damage to such structures in the future. A damage assessment team spent several days in Ortley Beach recording and documenting the damage found in that community. Afterwards, with the aid of photographs taken during the trip, much information concerning the nature and amount of damage to each structure was gathered and compiled. Estimations regarding the total damage sustained by each structure were made. Early analysis of this data reveals that homes in Ortley Beach that were the closest to the ocean tended to suffer the most damage, while damage to homes further from the shore may have been based in part upon the age of the structures in question.
