In this Dec. 3, 2012 photo, Belmar, N.J., Mayor Matthew Doherty points to hurricane tie-down straps under the one tiny section of boardwalk in his community that survived Superstorm Sandy. The borough used the straps in an experimental section to see if it withstood storm damage better than normal boardwalk construction. Belmar is spending $20 million to rebuild its boardwalk, and will use the tie-down straps on the entire new project. (AP Photo/Wayne Parry)
