Beach Erosion – Gilgo Beach – Coast Guard – 5/7/18

Walked Gilgo Beach from the center Path to Coast Guard Station late morning during the mid  tide.The slide below shows a picture of the West and then the walk East to Coast Guard Station.

Most of the dunes have eroded to within a foot or so of their peaks.
The majority of storm fencing and posts are gone or damaged.
The high water line comes within a couple of feet of the dunes in many locations.
There is not a lot of beach!

Mike from CA in front a half a dune on the east side of Gilgo before Coast Guard Station.

100 feet West of Coast Guard Station, erosion has gone past the peak height of the dune, it is eating up the dune to Ocean Parkway.
Look at the high tide marking in the sand, the ocean is reaching the dune line regularly on high tides.

Check Captain Rick and Gabby in front the dune danger zone, dune lost 10 feet plus in height.

Look at the dark sand area line on the beach, it is where the dune used to exist!

Top of the Dune Danger Zone, no flat top here.

This is the Top of the dunes 150′ West at the Path. Gives you an idea of the amount of destruction.

The South Shore Babylon Barrier Beaches need sand, call your Congressman today.

July 9th AM HT @ Gilgo

Hight Tide at Babylon Town Gilgo Beach on July 9th.

Walked the beach on the incoming am tide which was 8:10am.
Ocean calm with light off shore wind and a little 2′ wave.

Edge of the Coast Guard Station looking west.

Looks like a little more sand came back, but can still see the high tide erosion on many of the dunes between the public Gilgo Beach and Hemlock Cove, about a 3 mile stretch.

East end of Gilgo Beach looking west, only place to sit is at the bottom of the dunes
