UNION BEACH - Volunteer crews worked along the Jersey Shore today to help clean up debris left over from Superstorm Sandy, 140 days after the storm hit the coast.

The crews consisted of college students from the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) who will be spending their spring breaks in townships most affected by the storm. School officials say over 600 people registered for the program.

Students working in Union Beach on Sunday morning helped clear debris from recently demolished homes.

Since Sandy, 115 homes in Union Beach have been demolished with 80 more homes waiting to be taken down.

Emergency management officials say the free demolition of homes will continue until the work is done.
