St. Mary's Barrier Spit Before and After Hurricane Sandy

Before and after photos of St. Mary's barrier spit.  The top row of photos shows the barrier spit prior to Hurricane Sandy and the bottom row shows the barrier spit after Hurricane Sandy.  The tide rushed over the entire length of the sand spit tossing the picnic tables and destroying the fence as well as many of the plantings.  Clearly there is a need to replant in the Spring.  The plantings on the barrier spit are being monitored by the DEEP for three years (2011-2014).
