As rain and wind floated in and out of Long Beach, Saturday night’s high tide eroded a protective sand berm and caused damage to around 20 homes along the Peninsula beach.

According to the Long Beach Fire Department, reports of flooding began around the time that a five-foot high tide came in along with heavy surf conditions at 9:30PM, causing mild to moderate damage to parking and living levels of homes on Ocean Blvd. between 66th and 72nd places. LBFD personnel assisted filling around 200 sandbags and Long Beach Public Works employees arrived to rebuild the berm.

Long Beach Fire and Marine Safety officers erected a mobile command center in the affected area and monitored the situation through the next high tide Sunday at 9:30AM. The reconstructed berm held and there were no additional reports of flooding.

Will Nash with LBFD says the cost of damages is not yet known, but no residents were displaced.
