The unprecedented storm surge created by the storm caused the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to increase the number of storm surge forecasters at the National Hurricane Center starting with the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane season. They will also provide potential storm surge hazards at least 48 hours before the onset of tropical storm or gale-force winds. (AP Photo/New Jersey Governor's Office, Tim Larsen)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cut a ribbon to symbolically reopen the state's shore for the summer season, seven months after being devastated by Superstorm Sandy. This year's ceremonies are more poignant seven months after a storm that did an estimated $37 billion of damage in the state.
