New breach opens in Chatham beach

Last weekend’s storm ripped open a breach in Chatham’s barrier beach that may be as much as 1,000 feet wide, a town official said.

The barrier beach stretches in a thin strip off the southeastern coast of Cape Cod. The breach is the latest natural erosion to hit Chatham’s South Beach, said the town’s director of coastal resources, Ted Keon.
