Hurricane Sandy tore through the East Coast on Monday.
Seaside Heights was left in ruins after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast — and MTV’s Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWoww” Farley and her fiance Roger Mathews were devastated when they recently returned to their old haunt for a visit.

“It’s so sad,” JWoww, 26, told Celebuzz at a televised fundraiser — titled Restore the Shore – for the victims of the hurricane. “People who grew up there put their blood, sweat and tears into that town.”

“It’s like a war zone,” added Mathews, 37.

Despite the millions worth of damage done to JWoww’s favorite attractions, including the Shore Store that the Jersey cast worked at throughout the series, the reality TV starlet has hope that residents will be able to rebuild and regain what was lost in the storm.

“The best thing is that we’re ready to restore it and rebuild it and come back stronger,” she said. “And next year, [hopefully] have everyone there like it never happened.”

On Thursday night, JWoww and her Jersey castmates — along with famous faces like One Direction and Taylor Swift — joined forces with MTV to support those who were severely affected by the hurricane.

“We want everyone to get their jobs back. We want everyone to get their homes back. We want them to have food, shelter and clothing — so that’s why we’re here.”
