This morning, President Barack Obama, Gov. Chris Christie, and Federal Emergency Management Administration director Craig Fugate took a tour of the damage Hurricane Sandy has brought upon New Jersey.
Part of the survey included an aerial tour via the Marine One helicopter.
Below are some of the devastating images snapped from a helicopter trailing the president and Gov. Christie. In one image, the Seaside Heights roller coaster that Christie has solemnly referred to as being underwater can be seen; in other images, entire barrier island neighborhoods can be seen as swallowed by sand and water damage.
