Divers clean up Sandy wreckage

BARNEGAT, N.J. -- Divers off the coast of New Jersey are intent on cleaning up Barnegat Bay after Superstorm Sandy tossed houses, cars and other debris into the bay.

State officials say there are about 1,400 vessels, 58 homes and 8 cars still in the bottom.

"Everything you can imagine on land is in the water," said diver Mike Sonta.

Tow boat companies got held up because they need clearance from the boat owners and their insurance companies first.

Officials hope to clean up all of the debris by Memorial Day because it  poses a threat to boats and  could cause pollution.
