As the 7th anniversary of Superstorm Sandy approaches, Dr. Charles Flagg took another flight over the Breach at Old Inlet on Fire Island on October 24, 2019. The flyover mosaic is available below. Dr. Flagg noted that the water ” was very clear which showed a clear demarcation between what looks like new shoals from the breach and old shoals farther north.”
Mark Lang has assembled all the geo-referenced photo mosaics into a kml file that can be viewed using Google Earth. By clicking between images and using the fade in-out button you can clearly see how the inlet is changing with time. An offline version of the KML file is available as KMZ. The full size image is also available.
