Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared to call out New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for using federal funds for Hurricane Sandy relief on Wednesday.

“It’s only one hurricane, [it] can’t beat us,” says Frank Rainey, who has operated a boardwalk game in Seaside Heights for more than 30 years.
The study looked at data from 117 deaths captured by American Red Cross mortality tracking during the time period from October 28 to November 30, 2012.
That’s according to a study by the nonprofit science journalism group Climate Central. It says that’s equivalent to having Central Park covered 41 feet high with sewage.

The center, located at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, will close on Thursday, Feb. 14th at 7 p.m.

On Thursday, Governor Chris Christie made an announcement in Seaside Heights that the state is immediately making those updated recommendations state rules.
As Jersey shore towns spend millions to rebuild boardwalks wrecked by Superstorm Sandy, some are opting for an additional layer of protection in the form of steel sea walls. But some environmentalists and scientists say the hard barriers actually worsen erosion as waves scour sand at the base of the walls.
