Four days of 30+ mile an hour winds proved too much for the sand dunes and beach fencing already in place to prevent erosion. (Photo source: WLOX) Four days of 30+ mile an hour winds proved too much for the sand dunes and beach fencing already in place to prevent erosion. (Photo source: WLOX)
HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County sand beach crews have their work cut out for them the next two weeks. 

"That storm made quite a mess," said Sand Beach Director Chuck Loftis. 

His heavy equipment crews are out cleaning, raking and smoothing the sand, especially in the high use areas. 

The timing of this storm is not good, right before spring break. Loftis said he'll be paying some overtime to try and expedite the clean up. The sand dunes and fencing helped some. 

"But it's not enough when you have three to four days of 30 plus mile an hour winds," said Loftis.
