KYW reported that the fire started at Kohr Brothers frozen custard shop on the FunTown Amusement Pier around 2:15 p.m. ET.

AP reported that more than three hours after the fire started in the vicinity of an ice cream shop, television footage showed flames still leaping into the sky and thick black smoke covering a stretch of the coastline.

About 20 businesses have been burned and damaged over six blocks.

As reported by CNN, the fire was still burning along Ocean Terrace Avenue between Stockton Avenue and Lincoln Avenue Thursday evening.

Photos: Nor’easter Storm Brought High Wind And Snow

8 11 2012

The nor’easter storm brought snow, rain and dangerous winds to the U.S. Northeast causing more than 60,000 customers from the Carolinas to New York to lose power.

At the same time, more than 640,000 customers are still without power after Hurricane Sandy hit their areas.

In fact the nor’easter storm could cause people who had regained power to lose power again.

Since the nor’easter storm causes freezing temperatures, the situation could be dangerous for people without power.

2 11 2012

The National Weather Service’s Prediction Center issued a warning for a possible nor’easter, which may hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions as early as next Tuesday.

The storm will bring moderate rains and gusty winds in many of the same areas ravaged by the superstorm.

It is not a big storm like Hurricane Sandy but it may cause more problems for both New York and New Jersey.

In Photos: Mass Transit Damaged By Superstorm Sandy

1 11 2012

Superstorm Sandy had caused huge damages to all of the mass transit systems especially in New York City and New Jersey.

The New York City’s subway system will be reopened on Thursday but it will be offering only limited services.

Please click here for:  Photos: NYC Subways Flooded By Hurricane Sandy.

The subways:

One of the biggest questions now is who will pay for the extensive damage to municipal infrastructure, subway tunnels, train tracks, electrical transformers, coastal boardwalks and piers, that Sandy left behind along the East Coast.

Andrew Cuomo announced limited subway service will resume on Thursday. (AP Photo/Metropolitan Transportation Authority)
