Strathmere Improvement Association Nor'easter update, Coming Events and Local News 10/5/2015
After several days with extreme winds and high tides,
Monday ushered in a blustery, clear day. Bayview was besieged by floods at high
tide throughout the storm, making it impassable, but the beaches withstood the
pounding. Township Engineer Paul Dietrich said, "We lost an average of 120' of
berm width along most of the beach and a little more between Winthrop to
extension of Neptune Dr. with a volume loss around 300,000cy. There was no
damage to the dunes, dune fence or cross-overs. The Township will be cleaning
out the cross- overs in the Spring." He continued, "Considering the severity of
the wind and tides and for how long it affected us, I think we did pretty
well.There was no scarping of the beach, so the beach absorbed the energy very
effectively. Actually, at Williams Ave there was almost no loss of beach, that
was the pivot point for the storm. North of Williams was affected by the Inlet
and South of Williams was affected purely by the wind & tides." Will be
interesting to see what sand comes back after the winds die down, he also
