TOMS RIVER - Officials in Toms River are rushing to build protective dunes as the nor'easter season looms.

About 100 truckloads of sand are being delivered to Normandy Beach to replenish a dune system that took a beating during Hurricane Sandy.

The sand will be laid down over the next 30 days.

The project is not the federal dune plan proposed by the Army Corps of Engineers, but is instead a stop-gap measure for protection.
