From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, there has been a surge of beach closets across the country.
As of Monday morning, more than 100 closures were announced by local government agencies in more than 150 cities, according to data from the Federal Government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
This week alone, the Department of the Interior announced closure of five coastal communities.
Here are some of the biggest closures, according, according with how much damage they have caused: New Orleans: All of the beaches in New Orleans have been closed, except for a small portion of the New Orleans Bayou, which has reopened for the first time since the hurricane.
New York City: At least five beaches in Manhattan have been shut down, including the Rockaways, which have reopened after being closed for more than two weeks.
North Carolina: A closure was imposed in Raleigh, North Carolina, and two beaches in the city’s North Carolina Coast Guard District have been temporarily closed due to storm surge and flooding.
Sierra Nevada: The state has closed at least five coastal beaches, including two in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
The National Weather Service says a coastal storm surge has submerged the city of La Jolla, Calif., in parts of the city.
This is a developing story.
