At the end of October, 2012, the New Jersey shore, among other places, was devastated by the landfall of Superstorm Sandy, or the "Frankenstorm" as it was nicknamed at the time. Sandy was only a category three hurricane at its worst, but at the time it made land in New Jersey, the combination of a full moon and high tides made the storm surge devastating.
