VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Virginia Beach officials say the city sustained approximately $5 million worth in damage as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
The city's Water Resources Engineer Phillip Roehrs estimated the damage to the city's coastline.
"We're guessing that along all our beaches we lost a half million cubic yards of sand and the value to replace that is right at about $5 million," Roehrs said.
Before the storm, Virginia Beach had already contracted beach replenishment at the Oceanfront and Sandbridge. Chesapeake Beach will get replenished at a future date.
Bubba's Restaurant off Shore Drive got flooded during the storm but opened back up Monday evening. Tidal action is to blame but the restaurant made preparations before Sandy.
