Blizzard ‘Nemo’ Hammers Plum Island

The blizzard of 2013, aka ‘Storm Nemo’ blanketed the greater Boston area with over two feet of snow. Plum Island, barely recouping from Hurricane Sandy, which eroded beach dunes so significantly as to put 4 homes on Annapolis Way in danger of falling into the ocean, got hit again hard.

Astronomically high tides this morning sent 15′ waves crashing on shore and had no mercy on the beach, continuing to erode the sand and dunes from center beach south.

Boston Globe posted pictures on its Facebook page of some of the damaged area.
