York, ME

Damage Reported

"Post Storm images in the vicinity of US Route 1A, Long Beach Avenue in York, Maine. Survey by S. M. Dickson, Maine Geological Survey."

Damage Reported

Marinas and Harbors
Hazardous Materials

State: Accessible

Coastal Structures

Specific Damage:

  • Splashover

Comments: The seaward fixes should align with the sidewalk - so all positions should shift about 10 feet seaward. It appears snow impeded or masked washover into many yards. The low-lying Juniper Rd was effectively a washover channel and carried sand and seaweed farther inland than in most locations.

Natural Resources

Specific Damage:

  • Overwashed beach/dune

Comments: Washover down driveway of 353 Long Beach Av (Fix 2) was 135 feet from sidewalk. Cobble washover crossed US Route 1A. For example see Fix 3 photo across from 339 Long Beach Av and Fix 4 of sidewalk littered with cobbles.
