NJ’s Beaches Suffer Under Sandy’s Repercussions

There is no doubt that Sandy has badly affected US and New Jersey's beaches are perhaps among the worst victims with half their sand washed away. It was claimed by Dr. Stewart Farrell, director and founder of the Coastal Research Center at Richard Stockton College, that after he visited Long Beach Island, it was clear to him that there is dire need to rebuild the sites.

"In fact, in some cases just damage to the dune itself. We found that a third to a half of the dune was eroded away. And all that sand was still on the shoreline", said Farrell, while confirming that there has been enough damage done to southern shore of Rhode Island, thereby eroding away thousands of tons of sand.

With the revelation, concerned authorities have come to action and are trying to find out ways to restore the beaches. Though fixing the shoreline is need of the hour, its way too expensive.

Meanwhile, there are reports confirming that one two rows of cottages located near the sea at Roy Carpenter's Beach are being instructed to move back Sandy lashed its wrath on the region.

No doubt Sandy has challenged the economic stability of the US, it would be worth seeing how the post-impact of the same is dealt with.
