Slide presentation beaches and hurricanes: 1995 in the Eastern Caribbean Islands
Slide 24: Banana Bay, St. Kitts, before Hurricane Luis
Here on the south coast of the Southeast Peninsula of St. Kitts, there used to be wide beach backed by a low dune and seagrape trees.....
......during Hurricane Luis, the beach and the dunes were eroded, leaving ledges of beachrock exposed on the beach. This beachrock, which is formed by a chemical process within the body of the sand beach, can be seen here exposed at the surface.
