Report Details

This is a late report. This year's King Tides have had major effects on our beaches this year. Wakonda Beach is no exception. My last dispatch showed some of these significant changes on parts of mile 199. The subject of dispatch the remnants of a vehicle that was exposed by the scouring actions of the waves during King Tides. The history of it is that it is a 1954 Chevy panel-delivery that got there in 1975. The driver was wreckless eventually oversteering causing it to roll throwing out the driver and another while two were still in it. It landed on its top. The last time it was observed only the tires/wheels were visible. It was surprising to see it exposed again - especially when it was some time and somehow turned back upright. The following images are from February 9/10. An inspection of the beach on March 13th found no evidence of the vehicle.

It was a gorgeous sunny day after all the rain. The barnacle log that I have been observing for months is still on the beach.

These have not been the highest waves of the storm season so far but they are still moving rock and scouring sand from the base of un-rip rapped foredune.
