Last year, Miller Place-Rocky Point residents were pretty shaken when Superstorm Sandy hit Long Island. Some had no power for days, while others spent nights on gas lines hoping to fill their tanks.

The hardest hit areas were Long Island beaches. Most of the Cedar Beach peninsula was completely flooded, while garbage and other debris were dragged into the sand. Since the storm, the town has been working hard to fix the damage that was done in a new project, Beach Replenishment Project at Cedar Beach. Earlier this month, the town announced the project has been completed.

The Town of Brookhaven said, "The project, which was completed in-house by town workers from the Parks and Waste Management Departments, restored the beach in the eastern bathing section and in front of the concession stand that had suffered storm damage erosion."

"Banks along the shore of the marina were also restored, and plantings are being done to prevent further erosion.  In all, over 7,000 yards of sand were moved during the regrading project."
