Harvey Cedars beach project to help block Hurricane Earl

HARVEY CEDARS - Earlier this summer, the Army Corps of Engineers finished a $25 million beach replenishment project in Harvey Cedars that officials say will protect the town from storms this hurricane season.

The project entailed creating huge dunes and extending the town's beach. The mayor says he's confident the changes will work to block Hurricane Earl. He says it's the first storm he'll be able to sleep through since taking office 15 years ago.

The mayor says without the project's completion the town would have been devastated in a future storm.
