Hurricane Sandy Floods Atlantic City Boardwalk
City's 12 Casinos Forced To Close Sunday Afternoon
Just hours after a mandated evacuation by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Atlantic City’s streets are now flooded by as much as two feet of water, according to a report by USA Today.
The city’s 12 casinos were forced to close Sunday afternoon in advance of Hurricane Sandy, which has pummeled the city with heavy wind and rain. According to Philadephia Inquirer reporter Aubrey Whelan, a part of the city’s Boardwalk may actually have been damaged in the storm.
Atlantic City is in the midst of its sixth straight year of decline and every day the casinos are closed only adds to the city’s economic woes.
After a peak of $5.217 billion in gaming revenue in 2006, casinos brought in only $3.317 billion in 2011 and the numbers are expected to fall yet again, despite the addition of the brand new $2.4 billion Revel Casino, which opened in April and has struggled ever since.
