2009 Veteran's Day Storm
The remnants of Hurricane Ida merged with a coastal low off of the North Carolina Coast mid November and headed northeast. New Jersey felt the effects from the storm from November 11th through November 16th 2009. The height of the storm was from the 12th through the 14th producing sustained winds ranging from 30 to 40 mph from the northeast with 8 to 15ft swells. The intensity and duration of this storm caused significant damage along New Jersey’s Coast resulting in a disaster declaration by President Obama on December 22nd 2009. The Coastal Research Center has survey data and photographic records of the severely damaged areas before and after the storm. Below are photographs of the storm damage in several shore communities.
