Fatal Fire Reported In Union Beach

New Photos Show Damage in Brick's Barrier Island Neighborhoods

Up-close look at Camp Osborn, other sections; natural gas line assessments begin as gravel road is built

New photos show damage and destruction in Brick's barrier island neighborhoods one week after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the area.

Residents have still not been allowed to return to the area, even for a short period to retrieve their belongings and important documents. There was no immediate work when a re-entry would be permitted.

Work had already started to improve access to the area, incuding a gravel road constructed across a newly-formed inlet that had formed near the base of the Mantoloking Bridge.

New Jersey American Water Company said Tuesday the road was built near its main line by U.S. Navy Seabees.

New Jersey Natural Gas said Tuesday it was beginning to make assessments to the fate of its system in the area after pressure to its lines was cut last week, presumably forcing the system to have to be replaced due to water intrusion.

"Although we are dealing with significant access constraints in the Bay Head to Seaside portion of our system, we are beginning our service and main assessments in this area," the company said in a statement Tuesday night.

We are still looking for my great aunt who lives on the barrier island. No one in the family has heard from her and we do not know where she is. Someone gave me the number 732-262-1234 to call but she was not on their list (still not sure what list that is, but she wasn't on it). We are all out of state and not sure what to do to find her. How are people going about locating their loved ones? Is there a particular organization that is handling this?

@ Robert I was asking Dan to post locations under each of the pictures that are being posted. Some are so devistating, they are not recognizable.

Does anyone in the press have an idea of what started the Camp Osborn Fire?
