Assessing damages at New Jersey coastal refuge after Sandy’s sweep

E.B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge is located along the New Jersey coast, which was declared a disaster area following the storm. Personnel are on the ground determining the extent of damages and what repairs will be needed before areas of the refuge can be made safe for public access. The refuge’s wildlife drive, a birding destination, is impassable and will be closed indefinitely.
