    Will Hurricane Florence uncover any new shipwrecks?

    With 24 hours of a 15 foot surge I am guessing a lot of sand is going to get moved around on the beaches of North Carolina/South Carolina.

    What do you think?

    Will also most likely create quite a few on shore.

    I dunno anymore, with all of the replenishment activities, sometimes it takes a hell of a lot to get down to any older conditions.

    With a 15 foot surge, will create more of new rubbish layer, than uncover older layers.

    Most older wrecks are discovered pretty deep, even near shore, so covering yes, uncovering, well....

    A near shore wreck, uncovered with this storm, would likely have been uncovered long ago, and simply buried over again over time. Sand easily moves, but artifacts sink...That being said, a few scattered artifacts can be swept up and deposited, but I would doubt an entire shipwreck that is "new', or uncovering anything significant of a wreck that has not already been uncovered in the recent past.

    I was thinking about the people first of all and hope for little damage and no casualties. Then after the storm how many treasure hunters will hit the new beach looking for great finds. Hoping for the best to everyone on the east coast.

    Just turn right instead of left at the flashing light.

    Similar to what xaos stated, due to Florence slowly moving ashore and if it does track Southwest along the North Carolina and South Carolina coasts before turning more inland, any old shipwrecks that it might have uncovered in somewhat deeper waters, will likely be covered back over. In other words, the storm surge and winds from the Hurricane likely uncovered some shipwrecks on its way to the North Carolina coast but as it turns Southwest, the winds on the West, Southwest and West Southwest quadrants of the storm, will likely cover everything back over due to the heavy surf. Note: No matter which direction a Hurricane moves, the leading edge in the direction it travels is North in relation to the Hurricane, so if you draw a line from that point through the center to the opposite side of the direction of movement, then that is South in relation to the Hurricane. Well, I am sure you know how to determine the East and West portions of the Hurricane!

    A chunk of a hull, I would not get too excited about that on the beach, other than to show that out there, somewhere, is the rest of it. somewhere. (pieces of the Atlantic City Boardwalk were found on Long Island)

    Stirred up sand is liquefaction, and heavy items sink, look how the blowers work.

    Not much of a cut on the beaches around the 1715 Fleet.
    Kind of a bust around here. Kind of flattened the 2' cut from last week.
