Today I'll be talking about the breach at Old Inlet, just south of Bellport in the Bellport Bay. There is a lot of controversy over this new cut that Superstorm Sandy made last October. Here are some links and other info you may find useful if you are interested in this topic:

So if it isn't the breach, what is it? Here's one theory: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/imageo/2013/02/14/east-coast-sea-level...

It's not just the south shore bays! Check out these video clips from NJ and MA:

First advice for the day is to be sure to take 90 seconds to pause and reflect on the beauty of the snow filled morning Mother Nature has presented us today! Then give yourselves a few extra minutes to get to work because it is snowing out there and temps are right at the freezing point.

Start off with Pink Fraud! Live recording from 3/6/13 at Patchogue Theater For The Performing Art's Live In The Lobby series. It was EPIC!

Then we'll hear an interview Professor Jim Quigley (of Stony Brook's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences) did with a Professor Chris Sellers, Stony Brook History Department, on Sustainability. Look for more of Jim's programming here on WUSB.

My guest in the studio will be Kathy Seyfried, a member of the Speaker's Bureau for the County Emergency Response Team (CERT), to speak on Emergency Preparedness. If you're interested in learning more about CERT for Nassau, email oemcert@nassaucountyny.gov or call 516.573.9696, or in Suffolk google "Suffolk CERT" or go to (http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/FireRescueandEmergencyService...).+

Today's discussion is the impact storms have on Long Island inlets, and in particular, the new Old Inlet (which I am instructed is NOT an inlet, it is a BREACH).

My guests are Carl LoBue from The Nature Conservancy, and Marshall Brown from SaveTheGreatSouthBay.com and on Facebook. Send your questions to habanero@wusb.fm, or call the studio between 6-8 am (631.632.6901).
