Avalon 2009 Veteran's Day Storm

The north end of Avalon saw substantial beach erosion as a result of the 2009 Veteran's Day storm.  The beaches on the north end lost 125,700 cubic yards of sand and the dunes in the north end lost 34,000 cubic yards of sand.  The large volume of sand loss is evident as the sea wall under the dune crest is been completely exposed.
