CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.J. -

Residents in Fortescue, New Jersey say Sandy changed their lives.

FOX 29's Dave Schratwieser spent the day in Fortescue, where entire homes slid into the bay, decks collapsed and entire waterfront rooms disappeared.

Residents say winds from Sandy tossed around boats like they were toys.

One homeowner tells FOX 29 the storm separated their second floor deck from the house.

Longtime residents say in 30-years, they've never seen anything like Sandy.

Cleanup is expected to take a month, but rebuilding will take much longer.

You can watch Dave Schratwieser's report in the video above.
