Folly Beach received the most damage along the South Carolina coast from Hurricane Irene. Now, officials are looking at ways to replenish one of the state’s most popular beaches. South Carolina did not see the worst of Irene, but Folly Beach is still finding ways to recover from the damage it received. The town’s mayor, Tim Goodwin took federal and state officials on a tour of the beach–or what’s left of it.
The Charleston Post and Courier reports the beach is now in dire need of new sand as there’s really not much beach left. In 2005, Folly Beach underwent a beach replenishment project, and Mayor Goodwin is hoping the town can receive enough money to revive the beach–again.
