Hurricane Irene aftermath
By Adam Rubin
Here's a look at Long Beach, L.I., photos on Sunday afternoon, after Hurricane Irene had cleared out.
The Atlantic Ocean breached spaces between dunes and submerged W. Broadway. Most of the water had receded, but here's the aftermath.
An ABC News vehicle, parked a block from the ocean, took the brunt of the storm as water surged onto the street.
The Long Beach beach patrol headquarters got dragged all the way until it hit the boardwalk.
Staffers from the oceanfront Allegria Hotel dig out after the water overran the first floor.
