BELMAR, N.J. (AP) - Debris and damage from Sandy continue to hinder recovery efforts in New Jersey.

Impassable roads are keeping firefighters from responding to series of natural gas fires in Mantoloking. An emergency management official says the flames rekindled Wednesday where about 14 homes were destroyed two days ago.

Motorists face numerous blocked roads and traffic lights that aren't working.

Newark Liberty International Airport reopened. However, travelers should check with airlines to determine if they're flying.

President Barack Obama plans to join Gov. Chris Christie on a tour of the damage Wednesday.
