WESTHAMPTON - Help is on the way for Long Island's beaches battered by Hurricane Sandy.

On Monday, the Army Corps of Engineers will begin dredging a breach at Cupsogue Beach that created a new inlet.

The breach is the largest of three caused by the storm.

Officials say that the repairs will take about two weeks, and while the repairs will likely not stand up to another Sandy-like storm, they will protect the area from a traditional nor'easter.

The project is expected to cost about $6 million, with 60 percent paid for by the federal government and the rest paid for by the state and county.
