Long Beach Island residents allowed to return

Nearly two weeks after Sandy battered the Jersey shore, the evacuation order for residents in Long Beach Island was lifted.

The order was lifted 6:00 Saturday morning and all residents with placards have an opportunity to return.

Homeowners will finally get a chance to survey the damage Sandy left, with the assistance of the New Jersey National Guard.

The only exception to the order is the community of Holgate where officials say the damage was so bad that it's still too dangerous to return.
