Storm Causes Damage at Northport Beach

In the early months of 1924, Northport was hit by a fierce storm.

Its power caused a significant amount of damage, stirring up the sea and causing waves to rise to great heights. Amidst this chaos, human-made constructs experienced a powerful impact. A scow and derrick owned by Henry Steers, Inc., anchored off Bluff Point, were torn from their places by the storm. The force of the storm was such that these vessels ended up high on the shore of Duck Island.

Further destruction was caused by the turbulent sea upon a stone wall that had been erected on Duck Island to protect the bank. The storm caused 200 feet of this wall to collapse.
