High tides are pushing into the dune system, which is an effect of the nor’easter weather conditions.

Driving from Peters Point South to State Park is suspended for at least 24 hours, according to the county manager and the Emergency Management and Public Works directors.

County staff and the sheriff’s office will meet tomorrow morning to assess the erosion and beach conditions and will provide an update after the meeting.
