    New Jersey residents will mark the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy in ways big and small.

    They'll take part in vigils, hold prayer services and in some cases just spend another day ripping out moldy wallboard.

    It was a year ago that Sandy made landfall in New Jersey, just north of Brigantine.

    Gov. Chris Christie will start the day Tuesday thanking firefighters in Seaside Park.

    From there, he's off for a full day of Sandy events. He'll attend a Newark prayer service, thank volunteers in Moonachie, join a day of service in Union Beach and attend a pot luck dinner in Sea Bright.

    Sandy damaged or destroyed more than 340,000 New Jersey homes and businesses, hitting Monmouth and Ocean counties particularly hard. It was blamed for 71 deaths in the state.
