Hurricane Sandy Passes By

It’s Monday, October 29th and Hurricane Sandy has completely passed by Holden Beach without causing much more harm than some rain, winds & minor erosion. Locals and visitors alike can breath a sigh of relief.

But that doesn’t mean anyone is celebrating. Our community is no stranger to devastation wrought by hurricanes and other coastal storms.

Holden Beach has weathered many a hurricane in years passed. Some of them have left permanent scars in the landscape, economy, and the psyche of those who call Holden Beach home.

So, it’s in times like these that our thoughts go out to those still in the path of Hurricane Sandy. We send our prayers, and our hope for everyone’s safety.

We hope everyone has evacuated safely. Things can be replaces, but lives can not.
