Sandbag Map Online

State officials started enforcing North Carolina's ban on using sandbags to protect beach property from coastal erosion.

Now, people can see a map of where all the sandbags are, what their permit status is, and what they look like.

Those that are covered with sand and natural vegetation will be allowed to remain in place.

North Carolina banned seawalls and other hardened structures in 1985, but officials had allowed sandbags on ocean beaches as a temporary erosion control measure.
