As storm nears, Island shorelines at risk again
With a new storm heading to the Island that could bring severe flooding, workers rushed Sunday to replenish the eroding shoreline at area beaches.
George Gorman, deputy regional director for state parks, says Field 5 at Robert Moses State Park has the most eroded beachfront. Sand was also brought in to replenish Gilgo Beach.
With another storm barreling toward the Island, state workers fear the sand being put down could be washed away.
"It's a concern," Gorman says. "Mother Nature could take all the sand away in one swoop."
