Some Jersey Shore Businesses Feel Effects Of Hurricane Arthur

By Justin Udo

OCEAN CITY, N.J., (CBS) — Hurricane Arthur brought a plethora of rain and storms up and down the east coast, hampering a lot 4th of July plans. This weekend, however,  it’s back to business for beachgoers and businesses alike.

Everett is a cook at Johnson’s Popcorn, one of the more popular spots on the boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ. He says, thanks to Arthur, what’s usually one of their busiest days of the year, was anything but.

“Yesterday it was almost nearly deserted. It was just pouring rain and the wind was terrible,” Everett said.

And as far as customers go, Everett says it was a far cry from what they usually see.

“A little bit less than 30 in over three hours,” he said.

This weekend as temperatures go back up and beachgoers return, everything seems to be business as usual except for the water.

Accuweather says before the hurricane temperatures were in the low 70’s and after the hurricane it’s around 59 degrees.
