    i'm gonna say yes. it may take a while, but casino will be back. i mean, it's not like the whole thing collapsed, so the rebuild won't have to be total.

    Heres the problem, people are saying that we should rebuild structures instead of what we should be building...Dunes and marine forests. This is a warning that we need to retreat from the shoreline not continue to build towards it, its madness to me.

    Ocean beds change, if it wasn't for human impact and dredging places like long beach island would be alot smaller or gone. how long can we fight of mother nature?

    it should and will be rebuilt. measures need to be taken to make it more durable and I'm sure they will

    i agree, but i think the emphasis should be on rebuilding the dunes. we're heading into storm season & we're gonna need that protection.

    along Absecon Island, AC and Ventnor had restored the dunes some years back. Margate and Longport did not, largely for aesthetic reasons (dunes block the view). it will be painfully obvious why dunes should be a priority - if you can't hold back the sea, nothing else matters. i'd like to see the no-dunes crowd get permanently ridiculed out of existence and i'm sorry this will be what it took do so.

    I live in ventnor and have been stuck on the island since last sunday. tuesday morning before all the crazy police state nonsence, we got a chance to drive around the island. The majority of the damage was caused from bay flooding. however the beach side blocks without dunes were also hit hard. Having the dunes can be the difference between staying dry and safe (my block) or having 3 ft of sand blanketing a block like snow (all of longport)

    yup...driving along central ave at the south end of oc, you could see where the dunes held & where they didn't...50-59th, the dunes collapsed & were blown into the street, covering the road in about a foot of sand. 40-49th, they held & the street was clear...the beaches & dunes in the 50 blocks had been erroding steadily for some time, exposing pilings i hadn't seen since my childhood 15-20 years ago.
