While current models have hurricane bill missing the East coast, a near miss can have both positive and negative lasting effects on our shoreline.

Past beach erosion has prompted homeowners to buy sandbags used to protect the shoreline.

Town officials say they expect high water this weekend which could actually be a positive effect from hurricane Bill.

Town officials hope this storm will do more good for the shore than it will any harm.

Sandbags can cost homeowners in the neighborhood of 300 dollars a bag.
