Huge Storm in Bethany

An unusual Spring storm hit Bethany starting Mothers Day night. These Nor'Easters usually come in the fall and winter. Staff at Mango's reported consistent winds of 60 mph and waves reaching almost 20' in height.

The resulting storm was devastating to the beaches that just recently enjoyed a $26 million dollar beach replenishment project. There has been a lot of controversy over the height of the new dunes (primarily you can't see the ocean from the boardwalk - although the view is still great from Mango's.) Thankfully that huge dune saved the boardwalk from those angry 20' waves.

Pixs of snow plows around the Indian River bridge, removing the blown sand from Rt. 1.
