    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Super Storm Sandy was a great opportunity here to detect, I didn't go for over six months because I thought it would be a slap in the face to the people who lost everything and half of everything they lost was in the water. It wouldn't look good to home owners pumping out basements and bulldozing their yards if I was out digging things that came from their homes. I never held it against the guys that told me later that they found a lifetime of gold & silver during those months but I never regretted not going myself to this day.

    No, just not the thing to do, I know I'd feel like a carpetbagger and people would look at me as one ,,, Though as per the OP, my only real interest would have been the beach area. But people there are hard at work cleaning up and salvaging, would be very bad optics to be out there swinging for rings while all that is going on.
    That said, I wish the locals well recovering what they can, when they can.
    This guy made a good drone video of the devastation of the area for anyone interested

    i saw a guy detecting the site of a car wreck that people died it.i thought that was in poor taste.this sounds like the same thing. the guy might have been investigator or something like that.i would just leave those people alone and stay away.

    Would stand to reason that the authorities would not want people wandering around on the lakebed, private or not.
    All I can say is if I was a local I would have been pounding the beach area until booted off.
