Hurricane Sandy in South Florida. By Geniusofdespair
I took these photos yesterday at 2pm, October 29th, from the corner of Sunrise Blvd. looking South down A1A. Earlier in the day A1A was flooded during
the high tide. The sand you see piled up was pushed/blown into the road by the surf/wind stirred up by the outer bands of Hurricane Sandy. The city plowed the sand back towards the ocean. I was told the white retaining wall running parallel between the road and the beach has washed away.
As you can see A1A was still closed yesterday afternoon. It has been closed since late Friday. A couple of shop owners said they had a few inches of water in their establishments but they were all open for business.
