SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has cut a ribbon to symbolically reopen the state's shore for the summer season, seven months after being devastated by Superstorm Sandy.
He appeared live on NBC's "Today" show to do the cutting Friday in Seaside Heights.
The ribbon was five-miles long, stretching through parts of what's known as the northern barrier island in Ocean County.
Several New Jersey 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.
