Jersey Shore Storms

I found this web page that shows some of the destruction along Long Beach Island, New Jersey during the winter storm of 1992. I thought it was kind of interesting in light of the current controversy regarding whether sand should be pumped on to the beaches down there, or not.

I also found this picture of Sea Bright. Up until the mid-90s, this is what most of the beach in Sea Bright looked like. I can't tell exactly where this picture was taken, but if I had to guess, I would say its probably about where McLoones is located. This picture of Ocean Avenue in Monmouth Beach is pretty cool as it shows the waves coming over the wall during a storm.

Here is a overhead photo of north Sea Bright, New Jersey showing the beach before sand was pumped onto it and after. The bridge you see is the Highlands Bridge (Rte.36).

I liked the old Sea Bright with less sand. The ersosion this year was pretty severe and it doesn't look like it will be a long time before the beaches disappear again.

No better way to trash your brakes than to drive through a few inches of salty water.
