I was in town last weekend during the noreaster. The erosion was minimal. High tides pushed some sand into the inlet parking lot and the wind did move some sand around as well, but not to the effect that was experienced during Superstorm Sandy last year. At Assateague Island the surf was very high and breached the dunes during high tide. Uptown in the area of 101st St. there was about a one foot drop to the water's edge.

I have friends who keep an eye on our beach place and they said the tide did rise over our pier and there was minimal inland coast flooding but there was not any major damage.  As with many storms, the waves do create a break in the sand where you have to climb up a foot to a foot and a half at many locations in north OC.  I am not sure about the southern part of OC but since I did not hear about it from my friends who were down this weekend, I am also sure that if anything, the damage was very minimal.

Some beach erosion, but not much more than is relatively normal for fall storms. Most of what occurred would likely return with the course of normal sand movement, but the periodic beach replenishment is scheduled for next Spring. It will target areas of the beach most in need of sand replenishment.
