I'm betting on the ocean on this one. Not sure devastating is even strong enough to describe the impact of closing that channel. Wow!

You can't beat mother nature. It's senseless to keep throwing money at it. Hate that it has to happen though.

Wrightsville Beach did. We have a rock jetty protecting our inlet and it hasn't moved or closed up since I moved here in 1989. It does on occasion require a bit of dredging but the ocean and a half dozen hurricanes have so far been unsuccessful in moving those gigantic boulders that make up the jetty. Stabilizing an inlet is easy. Getting past the enviromental crowd is the problem.
