Beach erosion may ruin Memorial Day for beach bums
Those traveling to the Jersey Shore for Memorial Day weekend can expect to see some beach erosion due to last week?s nor?easter.
Beaches in Monmouth and Ocean counties lost 1-2 feet of their shoreline. Long Beach Island and Mantoloking suffered even more. One resident said that the gradual slope beach behind her cousin?s Mantoloking home is now a cliff.
"We had perfect access to the beach," said Carol Ann Kosimor, who had to use a rope to climb back up the 20-foot drop.
Other areas along the shore weren?t as severely damaged.
