This is the rolling sea from Eggemoggin Reach into the Atlantic Ocean during yesterday’s surge from Winter Storm Riley, the so-called Nor’easter that attacked the Atlantic coast:
In Brooklin, we had high tides of over 12 feet both days in addition to storm surges that increased those tides to an estimated 15-plus vertical feet of water. Here are the Town Dock and the WoodenBoat School piers, as well as what remained of Naskeag Point during the surge:
Measured wind gusts here reached at least up to 26 miles per hour. The Town Dock got a bit of a swamping yesterday during the gusts, but we’ve seen no significant damage here.
