Montauk report

    Yesterday afternoon, the state police closed off Montauk Point, Turtle Cove, etc. to surfers or anyone else. Surfers turned back, bummed. Great surf at the lighthouse right.

    Jimmy Buffett, on his standup board, saved a kid who had gone out on a body board with no swim fins and got caught in the rip heading out to sea.

    This morning, the Atlantic Ocean joined the community of Ditch Plain, water pouring in at the East Deck. So far, Soundview is okay, but that will change when the wind comes north.
