New Jersey: 'There are rollercoasters in the water'

A massive clean up is under way following what may have been, according to New York's mayor, the worst storm the US East Coast has ever seen.

At least 40 people have been killed in the US, 18 of them in New York City. Last week Sandy killed nearly 70 people as it swept through the Caribbean.

Jody Herrington is from the charity Operation Blessing, and spoke to the BBC from New Jersey.
