Coastal storm is kicking up the surf

The big low-pressure system riding up the east Coast today is driving northeast winds onto the mid-Atlantic beaches this Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service has posted Coastal NOAAFlood Advisories for the Maryland shore:

"AT OCEAN CITY INLET...HIGH TIDE ON WEDNESDAY WILL OCCUR AT 917 AM
EST. THE WATER LEVEL REFERENCED TO MEAN LOWER LOW WATER IS
EXPECTED TO RISE TO NEAR 5.0 FEET. MINOR FLOODING AT OCEAN CITY
INLET BEGINS AT 4.0 FEET MLLW."

For a look at the surf, check out the Kite Loft web cam in Ocean City. Looks like those folks have installed a higher definition camera. First time I've seen it, but it's a much better picture than I've noticed before. Or maybe it's my imagination.

Here's a look at the surf in Rehoboth, Del. I didn't realize they were rebuilding the boardwalk out there. Is that repair work for damage earlier this winter, or routine replacement? Anybody know?

ocean city and rehobeth boardwalks were damaged earlier in the year. over 50% of the beach in ocean city was also wiped out adn an emergency sand/dune replacement is underway. also ocean city web site (oceancitymd.gov) has web cams too. right now most of the southern boardwalk ones are down due to some sort of maintenance but over th esummer they look great.

Here you go about the boardwalk.

The boardwalk was not affected by the storms. In the fall of 2008, Rehoboth began a complete re-build of the boardwalk, including replacement of the pilings. The second phase of boardwalk replacement began last fall. The boardwalk is being replaced in phases, the schedule having been accelerated due to the securement of stimulus funds.

FR: Thank you!
