City Island YC Dock wrecked - again

City Island Y.C. reports that for the second year in a row (last year it was Irene) our pier has been destroyed:
While CIYC indeed took a hit, we stand luckier than some of our neighbors. Swamped buildings, boats floating or blowing off their stands, boats and docks simply floating away, fires, and on - all within a mile of us. The volume and power of churning sea pushed into Eastchester Bay by relentless storm winds, and half-way up the sides of the Clubhouse, was astonishing and overwhelming in every sense of those words. Around the time of C.I. low tide Monday evening, 6:46 PM, King's Point reported water levels 12.50 feet above the predicted, LaGuardia Airport recorded gusts of 71 mph, and NOAA recorded wave heights of 6 to 9 feet in western Long Island Sound.
Joyce Mulcahy's blog City Island Sailing has shots of the damage.  The wrecked docks below are at our club City Island Y.C.
