After posting a new video of Dune Road inundated with storm surf on Monday from Bowman Prendergast, I took a ride out on Tuesday morning to see for myself. Access to Dune Road was closed east of the Ponquogue Beach but as you will see in the photos below, the immediate emergency has passed. Heavy equipment was moving into the area and the dredging operation that was shut down for the storm had resumed. The temporary berm that protects dune road was back in place and sand was once again pumping onto the beach. While a lot of sand was lost, the road appears ok and if work can continue without any more storms the area can be stabilized. Longer-term, officials are looking to the Army Corp of Engineers for help and are hoping to get an ocean dredge currently working off Fire Island to relocate to this area.
Did you know that Fireislandandbeyond has three live streaming cams from Davis Park, Fire Island covering the surf, beach and marina? Check out the tabs at the top of the page and bookmark for later!
