The 2007 hurricane season has not been a devastating on the U-S mainland as it has in the past, but storms still pack a punch for some coastal communities.
Last week Noel's weather system swept thousands of tons of sand and beachfront onto Florida Atlantic coast highways and streets.
This week the rehab and cleanup work begins. Monday (11/05) Ft.
Lauderdale-based work crews have started to collect and sweep abnormally sandy roads clear.
All those grainy granules have to be put back into the sea and the nearby A1A highway has to be reopened for traffic to avoid massive traffic snarls.
Residents in neighboring Lantana, Florida are also worried about the beach erosion, while workers aim at getting things back to normal before next weekend.
