Tropical Storm Ophelia Batters Beaches in Ocean City, NJ
For the second time in about a week, Mother Nature unleashed her fury on the beaches of Ocean City.
Just last week, Hurricane Lee passed several hundred miles offshore, however, waves of six to ten feet tore-up the sand in America's Greatest Family Resort.
While perfect for surfers, lots of sand washed away.

Saturday was a completely different story.
While Lee didn't impact the weather at the Jersey Shore, Tropical Storm Ophelia certainly did.
Wind gusts of 50 to over 60 MPH smacked the shore towns, rising water flooded streets, and the angry ocean kept surfers and just about everyone else far away.
Here's what Ocean City looked like around high tide Saturday afternoon.
