Gov. Chris Christie this morning allowed Atlantic City's casinos be reopened to the public, six days after his executive order declaring them closed in preparation for Hurricane Sandy's arrival.
Christie ordered gaming suspended on Saturday. He said they could reopen starting 10 a.m. today.
Sandy officially came ashore in Atlantic City 8 p.m. Monday night and was severely impacted by the storm, with part of the the boardwalk being washed away in the northern end.
Christie had suspended operations at all 12 casinos, which forced closure of all the hotels, simulcast facilities and gaming. The opening of the casinos reopens the city the public.
