Brick Beaches Suffer Damage, But Dunes Still Intact

Brick Township beaches suffered damage and erosion like most fellow Jersey Shore oceanfront communities, but a look at the township’s two primary public beaches showed it was not nearly as bad as elsewhere.

Brick’s beach entrances were intact, as was its dune line, but a wave of sand blown in from the strong northeast winds of the storm did nearly bury the railings of entranceways. Dunes did not have the cliff-like enscarpments that have been found in communities such as Ortley Beach or Bay Head, however dune grass was flooded by seawater and some is covered in sand.

The good news, forecasters say, is that a storm powering through the Shore area Sunday will come and go fast, with the system moving quickly northward at about 40 m.p.h.
