March 2018.



  The aftermath of recent storms has really taken a toll on the beach. Much erosion has taken place leaving bare trapbags exposed. Also beach stairs ripped away. Construction continues on a fabulous new home on the ocean at 116. While the moving back of proceeds on 397 Nautilus. 


The season begins as PJ McAteer and staff arrive for a walk through of the properties. Season 2018 is here…





Winter storm Reilly.


A monster nor’easter clobbered Long Island Friday March 2, 2018 knocking down trees and power lines and causing power outages to rack up into the tens of thousands.
As of 10:32 p.m., PSEG Long Island said 35,313 of its customers were without power. The wind and rain were beginning to wind down by Friday night, but major coastal flooding concerns remain during high tides on Saturday.
A high wind warning remains in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday. The top wind gust recorded on Long Island was in Bayville, where a 78-mph gust was recorded at 5:26 p.m.
Coastal flood warnings will be in effect for southern Nassau and southwestern Suffolk from 6 a.m. Saturday until 2 a.m. Sunday and for the rest of the Long Island coast from 10 a.m. Saturday until 2 a.m. Sunday.  Coastal residents in the warned area should be alert for rising water, and take appropriate action to protect life and property, the National Weather Service says.








In the Pines there are no reports of over washes from the ocean. Tides were very high, but it doesn’t appear any worse than the other big storms of the winter. There is moderate erosion. Water coming in from the bay seems to be more of a problem. The roadway through the community is substantially underwater. The maximum winds during the storm were 49 miles per hour in the Pines. Suffolk County has downgraded the storm. There is still concern about high tides, one tonight from 8 to 10pm. The water levels will be at their peak at the second-high tide. Ferry service cancelled Sunday March 4, 2018.
