Wrightsville, N.C., September 16, 1999 -- Hurricane Floyd winds and storm surge caused a fair amount of damage--in this case to the Shell Island Hotel through erosion and damage to stucco walls.  Here, further erosion was prevented by bladders of sand set up to null the wave actions that still managed to eat at the foundations of the hotels' structure.   Photo by DAVE GATLEY/ FEMA News Photo
