    For those that know the town, check the pictures in the article. But don't panic it is a tidal thing due to positioning of sun and moon and will all become good again in a few days apparently. It has affected other places too.

    The videos showing boats just sitting on sand where there was recently water under them are pretty dramatic..
    This is NOT Sand being deposited onto a beach, this is something else completely.
    Like the Tide has gone out .. Is it possible that with all the Earthquakes that the North side of the island may have been RAISED by a couple feet ? I know that Sounds wild , but there is no way this is just shifted sand , its way too dramatic , and severe...

    http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/springtide.html explains the 'neap' tide with graphic.

    Yes you can get some dramatic changes in sea to land levels after very large earthquakes and thankfully we haven't had one.

    Combined with the spelling - a shocking reflection of the failure of the education system.

    "Tide goes out; tide comes in. You can't explain that!"

    Beaches do appear and disappear after earthquakes here, usually overnight. Much of the eastern coastal plain is coral uplift. The beach in front of Hotel Waterfront in Sosua didn't exist 15 years ago. Something to consider before buying ocean front property. I wonder if you can insure against that...

    And Playa Alicia is kind of Obviously NOT Going anywhere. a very large beach now.
    In fact you WILL burn your feet if not wearing Flip flops before you ever make it to the waters edge on a hot day ..
    More than enough sand there .
    This whole concept of new beaches appearing out of the ocean is most fascinating .
