The front third of the tanker is grounded into Front Street. The city’s waterfront was largely destroyed, which includes a number of businesses on the water.
The 168-foot tanker was moored about a mile away when Sandy’s powerful force propelled it toward land.
No one was on the tanker and no one was hurt as a result of it running aground.
