Little change in erosion on NC beaches

ELIZABETH CITY (AP) — There has been little change in beach erosion patterns in North Carolina over the past seven years.

The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reported a new report from the state Division of Coastal Management shows most beaches are eroding at about the same levels as usual.

Currituck County’s beaches receded anywhere from 2 to 7 feet along nearly 23 miles of the barrier island in 2011.

Ken Richardson with the coastal management division said that’s about the same as 2003.
