Storm-caused breach of barrier island at Fire Island NS will be left alone, USNPS decides

No one can say when the Fire Island breach opened by superstorm Sandy will close — as most such inlets eventually do on their own — but it will be filled in only if it causes harm, under a final approved plan.

The National Park Service, in a statement Thursday, said it would only reconnect the barrier island "to prevent loss of life, flooding, and other severe economic and physical damage to the Great South Bay and surrounding areas."
