Mass. state troopers help out in storm-wracked New Jersey
One house, swept by the sea, sits in the middle of an intersection a half-mile from its foundation; another is a pile of rubble mangled by Hurricane Sandy’s powerful winds and waves. Those are some of the images seared into the memory of the leader of a group of Massachusetts state troopers sent to New Jersey to help with storm relief. “You cannot comprehend the amount of devastation that this storm caused. It’s overwhelming,” said Captain John Byrne.
