The Baltimore Sun reports that Ocean City's downtown pier was more or less demolished Sunday night by crashing surf and wind from Hurricane Sandy. 

Here are breaking details, as well as the link to the story:

"Town police spokesman Michael Levy said there is extensive damage to the pier, though webcams show some of the structure still standing. Town officials will provide more details at a 10 a.m. press conference.

"The pier sits at the southern end of the Boardwalk, in the area south of 17th Street under a mandatory evacuation since Sunday afternoon because of flooding."
