ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

The signs of the power and punch of Hurricane Sandy were evident along the Atlantic City Boardwalk Tuesday morning.

FOX 29's Dave Schratwieser reports 2,200 feet of the Boardwalk were devastated by the storm.

Huge sections could be seen washing up as far as eight blocks away towards downtown Atlantic City.

Power lines and poles were down all around and Boardwalk debris could be seen up and down the beach.

As the storm has moved out of the area, the work for cleanup crews has begun. Crews on Tuesday could be seen making their way around the Boardwalk area.

Gov. Chris Christie surveyed the Atlantic City damage by helicopter as did the U.S. Coast Guard Tuesday.

It's not clear when the city will be able to fully reopen.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
