I remember the sky turning orange from the gas station fire at 10th and West Avenue the first night of the storm, the following day we (my mom, sister Luanne and myself) were picked up by the NJ National Guard and taken to the OCHS Gym.

My father was OC Firefighter, didn't see him for days. We lived on Pennlyn Place.

  • Roger Howell - yes!! remember! My dad tied ropes around us so we could watch the fire from the porch , it was windy and rain was blowing sideways, could not believe the fireworks from the fire!
