Superstorm Jersey Shore
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie holds an acknowledgment from the Guinness World Record which was presented to him at Seaside Heights boardwalk, Friday, May 24, 2013, in Seaside Heights, N.J. Christie cut a ribbon earlier in the day during NBC's Today Show to officially set the Guinness record for longest ribbon cutting and symbolically reopen the state's shore for the summer season, seven months after being devastated by Superstorm Sandy. Several beach communities have annual beach ribbon cuttings, announcing they are back in business. But this year's ceremonies are more poignant seven months after a storm that did an estimated $37 billion of damage in the state. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
