OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Winter's strong winds and high seas have once again taken a toll on Front Beach in Ocean Springs. Jackson County work crews were out in force on Front Beach Monday, shoring up the shoreline.

About 2,000 cubic yards of sand is being spread out on Front Beach, just south of the yacht club. That is where winds and waves have almost eroded that section of beach to the seawall.

That area of the beach usually has to be replenished twice a year, according to county officials.

The work should be finished in the next couple of days.
