Irene passing by tomorrow
Yesterday afternoon above (Wednesday 8/24/11). The swell was building but no erosion yet. Fingers crossed for the dune vegetation in the picture. Waves were powerful and overhead. Wind at the 20 mile buoy was 15 knots and the swell was 5.9 feet at 12.9 seconds. This morning just after high tide (below) the sea is angrier but no erosion yet. I'd hate to be a baby turtle that hatched last night and had to punch out through the surf. At 6 AM the 20 mile buoy is showing swell of 10.2 feet at 12.1 seconds with a wind wave of 6.9 feet on top of that.
