Hurricane Sandy 10 Years Later; What We Learned was moderated by Meteorologist Joe Martucci. This free event was held at the newly opened New Standard Senior Living in Egg Harbor Township on Wednesday, Oct. 26. Superstorm Sandy made landfall around 6:30 p.m. near Brigantine on Oct. 29, 2012. It's the fourth costliest tropical system in the United States' history and was responsible for forty deaths in New Jersey alone. Those in attendance got to hear from a five person panel, local to South Jersey. - Vince Jones, Director, Atlantic County Office of Emergency Management - Jim Eberwine, Absecon Emergency Manager and retired National Weather Service Meteorologist - Ryan D.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — A township man was arrested at the Sunoco gas station near the airport traffic circle after police say he broke into the convenience store on back-to-back days.

Seamus Manley, 25, was charged with burglary and theft after he confessed to the break-ins, police said.

Police on Saturday were informed of an activated alarm at the station on Delilah Road about 1:35 a.m., police said. Officers saw a large window had been smashed and cigarettes, money and lottery tickets had been taken.

Security footage captured the incident.

The following day, at 12:55 a.m., a “loud banging” was reported at the store. When officers arrived, they found a sheet of plywood that had been installed after the window was broken on the ground, police said.

Responding officers surrounded the building, finding Manley inside attempting to steal merchandise, police said. He had 13 lottery tickets worth about $390 in cash on him.

Manley was taken to the Atlantic County jail. Additional charges are pending, police said.
