A blustery nor'easter that churned up the coast recently carved huge chunks of beach from Jersey Shore towns throughout the coast, leaving some spots with 10 to 20 foot cliffs at beach access points.
The state Department of Environmental Protection sent out a team to assess the erosion. The DEP found that of the 95 spots checked, 78 sustained minor erosion.
The heaviest damage was found on Long Beach Island and in parts of the northern Ocean County peninsula, where a federal beach replenishment project is scheduled to start this spring.
The video includes views of North Wildwood, Avalon, Harvey Cedars, the Loveladies section of Long Beach Township, Ortley Beach, Mantoloking, and Bay Head.
