Sandspit’s beach front washing away

Submitted by Pat Carrie Smith–The recent storm with north winds which halted the Kwuna for the better part of two days, interrupted power and brought trees down on the highway also left its mark on Sandspit’s beach.
Across from the grocery, a washout in the narrow strip of land between the road and the beach doubled in size. Residents of Sandspit worry about the road, which is the access to the airport for airline and Medivac passengers as well as VIH. It seems likely that a strong northeast storm would cause more damage. Joanne Ikert, observing the progression of erosion at that spot in her daily walks, took this photo. Attempts are being made to contact the appropriate road maintenance office.
