Riding out Hurricane Sandy on Nantucket Island

Hurricane Sandy passed southwest of Nantucket, but the superstorm lashed the island with high winds, and caused significant coastal flooding & beach erosion. For a time, the island was effectively cut off from the mainland, with all flights and ferry service cancelled, and Nantucket Harbor closed.

  1. Along the waterfront of downtown Nantucket, Sandy's storm surge pushed the harbor over the wharves and into the streets, flooding a wide swath from Jetties Beach to Washington Street and damaging a number of structures. In Madaket, the superstorm claimed several cottages, leaving the West End and Smith's Point strewn with wreckage. But Nantucket largely dodged the worst of Sandy, which was unleashed upon New Jersey, New York City and the mid-Atlantic.
