Prince Harry to see NJ storm damage, visit NYC

By By ANGELA DELLI SANTI

MANTOLOKING, N.J. (AP) — Britain's Prince Harry is headed to the New Jersey shore to visit two communities hard hit by Superstorm Sandy.

From there he's on to New York City to promote British trade and a community baseball program.

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as his guide, Prince Harry is scheduled to stop Tuesday morning in the towns of Mantoloking and Seaside Heights on the Atlantic Ocean.

Every one of Mantoloking's 521 homes was damaged or destroyed by Sandy last October, and scores of homes remain piles of rubble.

In Seaside Heights, which was home to MTV's reality show "Jersey Shore," the prince will see a famous image from the storm. It's a roller coaster that plunged off an amusement pier and into the ocean. Its demolition is scheduled to begin after his visit.
