Sunday marks the first anniversary of the storm that pulled trees from their roots, flooded cars, decimated homes and businesses and left thousands without power.
While Irene blew through Matawan, Aberdeen and neighboring Bayshore towns in August 2011, Matawan-Aberdeen Patch was there to cover the hurricane that, despite a devastating aftermath, was downgraded to a tropical storm.
One year later, we want to know: Does the storm continue to impact you? What changes did you make in and around your home? Did your business survive the wind and flood damage? Are there still areas that remain unfixed?
Share photos of your neighborhood from the storm and from today, so we can see how far we have come since the worst storm to hit New Jersey in almost 30 years made landfall.
