SCT, good to see you are able to post about something relative to where you actually live. The north end of Topsail has been under scrutiny well before Fran and Bertha. Developers were prohibited from building on the north end KNOWING that the natural migration of our barrier islands and inlets is to the south. A few payoffs, some fat pockets, a wave of the wand by the good ol' boys and BAM, you have condos on the north end. Their plight was known well before Fran and Bertha came along. Those hurricanes were simply exclamation marks on an existing statement. Same scenario with Shell Island resort on Wrightsville. It was all well known well before being constructed!. Look at the north end of Figure Eight, exactly the same scenario. Inlets generally migrate to the south on this portion of the east coast.
Perfect proof that just because you have money, it doesn't mean you're very smart OR have any class.
