It's not just a battle against storm damage in Atlantic City, as fighting words swirled between the city's mayor and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
It started Monday night, when the governor criticized Mayor Lorenzo Langford over evacuation issues.
Christie said the mayor encouraged residents to stay behind.
On Tuesday, Mayor Langford fired back, saying he never encouraged people to stay in Atlantic City, but presented the shelters as another option in addition to evacuating.
Sandy caused significant damage to the area by flooding streets and damaging a portion of the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
A fire in Ocean County that is threatening homes, forcing the evacuation of homes and the closure of a local school, continues to burn Thursday afternoon.
Wildfire danger continues into Thursday evening with low humidities and dry conditions. Winds continue to gust close to 30 mph.
A report of a deadly shooting Thursday morning just off Widener University's campus led to an alert urging school community members to "please remain indoors until further notice," but police have now given the all-clear.
