Now that Hurricane Sandy has passed — and as we cross our fingers hoping this unnamed nor’easter blows out to sea — alert “06880” reader Ed Paul wonders:
“In retrospect, was the time, work and money the town spent creating the sand berms at Compo good to lessen the wave force — or bad, since it gave a massive amount of sand a head start to get closer to homes and streets?”
He’s got a 2nd question, too:
“For all the homes and businesses that spent a lot of time sandbagging their front doors, did that help at all?”
Ed wants honest feedback. We do too. Click “Comments,” and let us know what you think.
When the Compo Beach berm was breached, sand poured onto — and into — Soundview Drive homes.
