THE flooding caused by Superstorm Sandy led to one New Jersey resident taking his jet ski for a ride.

Superstorm Sandy, one of the biggest storms ever to hit the United States, began battering the densely populated East Coast on Monday night.

In New Jersey, where the superstorm came ashore, hundreds of people were being evacuated after a levee broke early Tuesday. Bergen County executive chief of staff Jeanne Baratta told The Record newspaper as many as 1,000 people could need help. There are no reports of injuries or deaths.

However, one resident of Manasquan made the most of the flooding caused by "superstorm" Sandy by taking out their jet ski to navigate the flooded streets.
