‘Jersey Shore’: Seaside Heights ravaged by Hurricane Sandy; Snooki, JWoww speak out
The destruction of Hurricane Sandy has been seen on TV shows across the country over the past several hours, and one of the areas that of course was hit hardest was all of the New Jersey coastline; from a TV standpoint, this is a part of the country that millions of people go to know very well courtesy of “Jersey Shore,” and the sad news coming out now is that many of the locales around the Seaside Heights area, which was the setting for four of the show’s six seasons, have been completely and totally destroyed by the storm.
With that, we turn to someone in Jenni “JWoww” Farley,” who was of course on the storm and has been tweeting out some updates about what has been happening to some of the establishments in the area. She has already confirmed that the famous Shore Store that the cast all worked at is still standing, but both Bubba’s and the Lucky Arcade have been completely destroyed. We have yet to hear anything suggesting that the famous house on the show is destroyed, so for now we have to assume that it is in okay condition.
In addition to this, this photo is just one of many that is currently circulating of some of the amusement park rises on the pier that have been torn apart badly by the storm. We are not sure just yet the full extent of the damage, but it is going to take a major cleanup to get the Shore ready again for tourism season next year. The spot has become a huge destination ever since the show premiered, as it is portrayed as a spot to party, drink, eat, and meet new people.
“Jersey Shore” is continuing to air its sixth and final season on MTV, and another new episode is coming up Thursday night. Snooki posted the following message on Twitter just about watching all the destruction unfold:
“Seaside Heights suffered bad from the hurricane and my prayers go out to everyone affected! We are all fine here…love you JS❤”
