Erosion From Hurricane Ian Closes Avalon, NJ Beach: Photos
Here’s a look at the actual result of days of rain and wind, due to the aftermath of Hurricane Ian on the Avalon, Cape May County, New Jersey beach.
According to Michael Heath, who took the photos (shown above and below), the beach erosion has resulted in dangerous, approximately “20-foot cliffs all the way down to the beach,” said Heath.
This has necessitated that the Avalon local government to shut sections of the beach, posting a sign declaring that the beach is closed due to danger.
They’re not exaggerating. Look at the erosion. It is significant in this location.
Heath also advised that sections of the Stone Harbor, in Cape May County, New Jersey beach look similar in nature due to beach erosion.
Please be guided accordingly, as the chance of bodily injury presently exists, until further notice.
NOTE: It’s not just these two communities that are presently dealing with beach erosion. The aftermath of hurricane Ian has created similar conditions in sections of other beaches in communities throughout the region.
