Researchers from the University of Windsor are on the storm-ravaged beaches of Prince Edward Island assessing the damage from Hurricane Dorian.

Post-doctoral fellow Alex Smith and graduate students Brianna Lunardi and Elizabeth George arrived in Brackley Beach on the island’s north shore on the weekend.

The group first flew a drone over the shoreline to survey the devastation from the air. Over the next week, they will move on to Cavendish and Stanhope, also on the north shore.

The Coastal Research Group was in P.E.I. just weeks ago, mapping the beaches and collecting data on sand dunes.

It is believed the group was the last to survey the beaches before Dorian hit and is now the first to study the storm’s aftermath in-depth.
