Days of higher than usual surf and moderate stage coastal flooding caused a breach in the dune system in the northern end of Strathmere's beach in Upper Township between October 9 and 13. Scott Morgan, Coordinator for Emergency Management in Upper Township, said that a temporary fill would occur on Oct. 14 or 15.

Cape May, North Wildwood, Avalon and Strathmere saw the most significant erosion. There is a small potential that the Federal Emergency Management Association will declare a disaster in the county, providing federal funds to fill the beaches.
