By Bill Redlin

The Army Corps of Engineers is wrapping up its survey of the beaches in Ocean City, Maryland to determine how much damage the Nor'Easter did last week.

City engineer Terry McGean says a three-person team was expected to finish its work yesterday. McGean says he will probably know by Monday how much sand the beach had lost as a result of the storm that came through the area.

The storm was the remnant of tropical storm Ida. It caused considerable damage in Virginia as it moved up from North Carolina.

In Ocean City, the city had a dredging project planned for 2010. McGean says that will be moved up to replenish the beaches with sand.
