This video covers 8 months of impact from the BP Slick and most recently, a walk with Pam Batson, Mobile resident, along the Dauphin Island East Beach 12/11/10.
I had never seen the beach in such bad condition overall.
Heavy equipment was working in 6 locations along the beach sifting, and excavating all but the dune areas of the entire island coast.
I fear this is only the beginning. Nowhere in the impact area will our shores be the same in my lifetime. Our beautiful Alabama beaches may never be the same.
