Hurricane Irene Floods Point Judith, R.I.

Salty Brian State Beach Floods

Hurricane Irene hits the south coast of Rhode Island with hurricane force winds, heavy rains and a storm surge which inundated Salty Brian State Beach and the parking lot near George's of Galilee early Sunday morning. The breachway between Galilee and Jerusalem, behind, had 4-6 ft. waves during the incoming high tide and the water contributed to flooding on Great Island, and the docks in and around the state piers.
