I'm wondering how the barrier beaches fared. I can't imagine it wasn't worse for Long Beach than Irene was. Has anyone gotten a look? Was it breached? What about Milford Point? Is the sandbar still connected to the mainland? Anyone gotten a look at Griswold Point? I recall Nick was at Sandy Point in West Haven? Was there a big overwash? Some of these issues could end up being beneficial to beach-nesting birds by creating temporary sparsely vegetated dune habitat at a higher elevation.
Thanks for any reports folks can provide.
