The sign at the Newfield Community Bank in Upper Township sums up Tuesday in Cape May County: "Closed due to hurricane."

As the sun rises, Cape May County residents are preparing to find what Hurricane Sandy left behind.

The Route 9 corridor is clear except for some debris, and power outages are spotty with sections of Middle Township including Burleigh without power.

Roads into the county's barrier islands are still closed.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. Said the island has spotty outages and some trees down.

Wildwood and North Wildwood still have some street flooding. A small part of the roof at the Monaco Motel did blow off at Ocean Avenue and there is some minor debris in streets.

There also are downed wires at Bennett and Ocean aves in Wildwood.

Wildwood resident Amanda Jackson stayed through the storm in her Hudson Ave. Home.

"I think we got pretty lucky. If that wind didn't change, it would have been very different," she said as she stood outside her home where the street was flooded.

She evacuated for Irene and chose to stay for Sandy.
