Roaring Point After Hurrican Sandy

Roaring Point beach experienced high tides of approximately 3.5-4 ft above mean water from Hurricane Sandy on October 29th, and this, combined with sustained 50+ mph winds, led to severe erosion and wind damage. Dune loss appears to be around 5-10 feet, with much of the stabilizing vegetation removed by the waves. This was especially severe on the south end of the point, and on the stretch near the entry path, which is now seriously endangered by removal of much of the dune front and loss of several large loblolly pines.
