VIDEO: Beach Restoration Along Ocean Parkway Coming Along

Video shows some of the beaches and dunes coming back along barrier beaches.

The Babylon Town Beaches were battered by Hurricane Sandy's fierce winds and powerful flood surge, but somethings appear to be getting better to the south.

Patch reader Tony Werner sent us in this video of the beaches along the Ocean Parkway as he drives eastbound. Construction equipment is everywhere, moving sands back towards the parkway to rebuild the huge dunes that once protected the area from storm surges.

Town officials told Patch earlier this year they planned to have the beaches restored by Memorial Day, but sand resources were running out.

Thank you for submitting the video to our Pics & Clips, Tony!
