Quogue Beach Shored Up After Sandy

Tons of sand arrived last week to cover geotubes that were unmasked during Hurricane Sandy.

Contractors arrived at Quogue Beach last week with truck loads of sand in an effort to shore up the area, which suffered the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

According to Quogue Mayor Peter Sartorius, the storm ravaged the beach, exposing sand bags, some piled as tall as 7 feet.

"We wanted to get some new sand down there to cover the tubes," said Sartorius, noting that additional sand will be needed, depending on how the rest of the winter goes.

Aside from uncovering the sand bags, Superstorm Sandy also pulled shingles from the beach's main building, demolished the swing set and gave the locker room door a good whacking, said Sartorius.

The village is in the process of planning out a remediation schedule and has already allocated $50,000, which in part is being used for the latest sand drop, which cost about $25,000, according to Sartorius.

The village will also be looking to obtain a reimbursement from FEMA, said Sartorius.
