JONES BEACH - Long Island boaters and Sen. Charles Schumer are calling on the Coast Guard to replace the main light tower at the end of the jetty of the Jones Beach Inlet destroyed during Superstorm Sandy.
That beacon of light was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, and boaters say without it they can't navigate the waters near the inlet safely.
The breakaway was also badly damaged after the storm. Without proper lighting and rocks, the inlet can be treacherous for boaters, especially at night and on rough foggy conditions.
Schumer says that the Coast Guard and Army Corps have plans to fix it sometime in 2014, but they say that is not good enough.
