The impact of Hurricane Sandy on Fernandina’s beach
October 26, 2012 6:30 p.m.


One hour before high tide,  ocean waves were reaching the sand dues just south of Sadler Road as Hurricane Sandy moves hundreds of miles off shore.  Not only is it high tide, but a full moon tide.  A number of residents and visitors were viewing the  surf conditions at main beach and Sadler Road.

Although  no beach erosion was observed at 6:30 p.m., there was still one more hour before high tide.  Tomorrow morning is certain to be a great beach combing day.
