JONES BEACH STATE PARK - Sandy's wrath devastated one of Long Island's most precious resources -- its beaches. News 12 Long Island's Judy Martin toured storm-ravaged Jones Beach today, where Deputy Regional Parks Chief George Gorman says no park was spared. He says the 1.5 miles of boardwalk destroyed by the storm will cost $50 million to replace. Gorman says Orient Beach on the North Fork is still under water. He says parks will reopen at some point, but they may open just a few at a time. The funds to rebuild will come from FEMA and the state.Sandy Emergency Resources
