MANTOLOKING, N.J. — Britain's Prince Harry will see signs of welcome as he views the reconstruction and destruction in two New Jersey shore towns hard hit by Superstorm Sandy.

A man on Tuesday hoisted two Union Jacks on poles in Mantoloking, near where the Atlantic Ocean meets Barnegat Bay.

The prince is scheduled to walk along the road in the wealthy town where all 521 homes were damaged or destroyed.

Harry will see a sign welcoming him in the Camp Osborn section of Brick Township, where 68 homes burned to the ground in a fire fueled by natural gas leaks.

With Gov. Chris Christie as his tour guide, Harry will visit Seaside Heights, which was the home to MTV's reality show "Jersey Shore." The prince will see a roller coaster that plunged into the ocean.
