As cleanup efforts get under way the National Guard is headed towards the hardest hit areas to help out this is a storm.
Sets his sights on Chicago and Wisconsin it is not over -- -- Is on hard hit Long Island with more on the conditions there in our first look really hi Jonathan.
Hi Jenna is the sun rose over the city of Long Beach here on Long Island this morning.
The extent of the devastation became -- horribly clear.
To everybody -- is quite extraordinary as you walk around and this barrier island city -- -- walking in front of me is the ocean.
Just about half a mile behind me is the base side of this barrier.
Island and -- night when that storm surge -- It was worse between 6 PM and a back nine all 10 PM last night.
The -- from both sides met there is not a street on this barrier island though was not at some point flooded.
And people now just having to deal with as -- a block off the ocean here.
This -- -- -- Brian level here.
An awfully bloody you can see the debris -- -- have come off -- -- -- walls around it it's a similar story.
Up and down these streets cause of just being moved.
Hundreds of feet in some cases completely destroyed.
It at this stage I have to say -- you talk to people -- it's a question of assessing the damage drilling before they even begin to pick up the pieces.
This is going to be a very long and very difficult process here on Long Beach which is the city which as I say is largely destroyed at least on the ground level of so many buildings right now and -- -- similar stories right across a Long Island it is difficult to get any information all -- is that here in Long Beach city we're operating off of batteries which will soon run out it is very good to get any information -- -- but it is a desperate situation.
For millions of people on this island today Jenna.
Typically even brass to transmit some video and we'll be getting video throughout the day from John within our entire team here at fox.
Jonathan thank you that's Jonathan live from Long Island.
