House in bay to be demolished in Mantoloking

MANTOLOKING, N.J. (AP) — Another of the iconic images of Superstorm Sandy will soon disappear.

Demolition work will start Thursday on a house swept into Barnegat Bay in Mantoloking. The house has been one of the defining images of the Oct. 29 storm.

Mantoloking was the hardest-hit Jersey shore town. All 521 of its homes were damaged, and more than 200 were destroyed by the storm.

The ocean cut a channel through to the bay, a breach that had to be repaired with an emergency engineering effort.
