Northeaster Erosion

December 2003

Once again, the enormous power of the ocean was evident on Sunday, December 7, 2003. A three-day Northeaster consisting of snow, rain and high winds roared through New England. These photos were taken at the top of the stairs leading to Nauset Light Beach at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, one-half hour before high tide. The battering of the bank continued for several more hours. The resulting erosion is evident in the photos taken three days later.
