To the editor:

I strongly support the construction of the 16-foot sand dune project for the Wildwoods. Hurricane Sandy resulted in a 14-foot storm surge in Sea Bright. Although the proposed sand dune project would have minimal protection from a storm like the March Storm of 1962, which brought persistent flooding over a period of three days, it would have protected us from a direct hit of a storm like Sandy, the category 4 Hurricane of 1821 or the Category 3/4 Hurricane of 1804. During those storms, there was a strong but apparently brief storm surge. The communities to the north of us exposed to the storm surge from Sandy with sand dune barriers did much better than those lacking this protection.
