OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Ocean City officials have reopened the landmark fishing pier that was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.

Mayor Rick Meehan made the ceremonial "first cast" from the reconstructed Ocean City Fishing Pier on Friday morning.

The resort town sustained minimal damage during the historic storm that battered the New Jersey shore last October. But the fishing pier, first built in 1907, collapsed into the ocean.

The nearly 600-foot pier has now been rebuilt. They mayor says he is happy that it will be open to visitors for the busy Memorial Day weekend.
