PHOTOS: Hurricane Sandy's Destruction Along East Coast

While residents and officials continue to clean up after a superstorm hit the East Coast, we take a look at the most dramatic images from the superstorm from Virginia to New Hampshire, including the devastation in New Jersey and New York.

It's been a long few days for residents along the East Coast.

First, they prepared for Hurricane Sandy's arrival, amid claims it was the "perfect storm"—filling sandbags, boarding up buildings and buying supplies over the weekend.

On Monday, as Sandy approached the Northeast, the winds picked up and officials began evacuations and last-minute preparations, while businesses closed early to avoid the brunt of the superstorm.

As residents on the East Coast hunkered down in their apartments and homes, Sandy's wrath battered beach towns, flooded city streets in unprecedented ways, and brought down gigantic trees on homes and roads, killing some and creating havoc for others.

Although no image can really express what many felt first-hand, here are some of the most dramatic of Sandy's travels from Virginia to New Hampshire, as featured on Patch.

I took my kids for years down to Seaside, NJ. We still have a lot of great memories from the days and nights of strolling around the Boardwalk arcades. May God bless and strengthen the recovery as people rebuild their lives, and their Boardwalk.

I am so sad about the Jersey shore and the Rhode Island shore. So many of my family beach memories at both shores. I pray for strength for those families, individuals and businesses as they start to pick up and rebuild.
