Hurricane Floyd damage on Carolina Beach Avenue

Paula Bruner documents the sand that was piled, up to 4 feet in places, in front of her vacation/rental home along Carolina Beach Avenue North at Carolina Beach. Hurricane Floyd caused severe tidal surge that brought sand with it onto the homes and streets on the North end of the island. Front end loaders slowly remove sand in the background in this photo from December 17, 1999.
