Slide presentation beaches and hurricanes: 1995 in the Eastern Caribbean Islands

Slide 39: Erosion of coastal lands, Rodney Bay, St. Lucia, after Tropical Storm Debbie

Even where there are no dunes, the land behind the beach may be eroded during hurricanes, as can be seen here at Rodney Bay in St. Lucia after Tropical Storm Debbie in 1994.  The earth bank has been eroded back leaving the building standing on the beach sand.
