In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Jersey Shore star's other half has been playing good Samaritan by hopping on his Jet Ski and zipping around his waterlogged town of Toms River, N.J., to help survivors of the superstorm.
Mathews, who's been tweeting about his DIY rescue efforts, was aided by a pal as they cruised around together and provided assistance to stranded residents, shut off power lines and kept vigil watch on the area.
"All bridges are closed to all barrier islands," he tweeted yesterday. "My buddy and I took our jet skis over to try and help those stranded."
He also expressed shock at the extent of the catastrophe, writing, "Nothing like jet skiing to your house to shut off the main breaker and gas. Yep. That's my house."
Yesterday, E! News confirmed that the Jersey Shore house in Seaside Heights remained unscathed.
The town itself, however, has suffered staggering and debilitating damage, with a whole boardwalk amusement park swallowed by the ocean, boats heaped upon rooftops and houses toppled over like dominoes.
In a statement, MTV said it was "actively exploring" ways to aid in the town's recovery efforts, adding, "Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by the hurricane, especially our friends and business owners in Seaside Heights, N.J., who are now part of the MTV family."
