Ophelia’s visit to Seven Mile Beach

Overall, the storm wasn’t as bad as expected.

The winds were brutal late Friday and overnight through Saturday morning. The biggest concern was the amount of outdoor items still in place and not yet secured for the winter.

Thankfully, the flooding was on the minor to moderate level. The heavy rain arrived prior to high tide, so there was time for that water to drain!

Tidal flooding from the bay side of the island covered streets in the usual low lying areas.

The ocean was wild, especially in the inlet between Avalon and Sea Isle City. The spring/summer Avalon and Stone Harbor beach fill definitely provided protection for our dunes and beaches.

I posted pictures on Twitter (https://twitter.com/AnnDelaneyBeach) from my storm chasing yesterday.

And we were back to our routine of a long beach walk before work this morning. All good!
