Early warning of the erosion threat of a northeaster or hurricane is of interest to emergency management officials and to the general public alike. Extensive erosion may cause the collapse of buildings and roadways located on the coast, and may lead to more extensive flooding and more severe wave impact on upland structures than would otherwise occur. This paper reports on a pilot study to develop an easy-to-use five-point scale to predict the erosion risk to shorelines from a northeast storm.
