Marinas and Harbors
Comments: Town beaches closed for storm.
- Eroded beach
- Eroded dune
- Eroded bank/bluff
Comments: Very large waves breaking off the east coast of the north Truro shoreline. Waves breaking on offshore bar and onshore, brown with sand/sediment. The bluff at the Wave Observation Shack (at Highland Center, run by NPS/Center for Coastal Studies) appears to have eroded (unclear if overnight or earlier), but scarp looks relatively new. Cracks in surface at bluff edge. Looks like waves are cutting the base of the bluff.
